Gosh it's been a while. Well...exciting plans afoot...we're off to Sydney for a year; 3 boys to re-school, 1 house to find, 1 house to re-paint and rent out, and a whole new country's craft and thrift to cast my beady eye over. Can't wait. Ish. Bit nervous. In amongst the planning there's still time for a bit of make-and-do. This week I had a go at constructing a piece of silver wire jewellery. I fashioned a ring from sterling silver wire (0.8mm for the main band, and 0.4mm for threading and wrapping), and a selection of costume crystals and old buttons. What a pleasant way to spend an evening. Thank you Forge ladies.
