I am really enjoying working with silver wire again. I had a wire beak in the middle of last year for 2 reasons, the price rocketed and I really could not justify buying it and I hit a missing mojo patch. Well at the end of last year Kookie started to self fund (hooray again) so I have been able to buy silver wire and I have found my mojo too!
I had a fab Birthday pressie from my lovely Hubby, he bought me a PMC starter pack and I have bought a small kiln so later this year my jewellery will feature sterling silver beads made by ME, I am extremely excited by the prospect. I love working with fabulous Lampwork beads but I really want to be able to make jewellery with my own beads, albeit silver ones as well as Lampworks form the fab artisans that I buy bead from now.

to this in 24 hours, which has been a tad of a shock.
We had a fab Christmas and New Year and I am definitely sold on the whole sunny Christmas thing, it was bliss.
I am hoping that the snow will bypass us this weekend so that the schools can open. Poor Leon is craving the company of little people and really wants to go back. Brian managed to get into work for this first time but the roads here in Bracknell are still a bit hairy to drive on. I cant remember having this much snow for this long before, it is so beautiful although I have to say I am ready for the thaw now. So if the schools go back on Monday then I can get back to work and get a few new designs up on the site.
Have a fabulous and safe weekend, enjoy the snow those of you who still have it and take care xxx
