Tuesday 31 March 2009

Have been busy doing paperwork/research/accounts so no blogging .... got hallmarking back and distributed that only to find out that one customer has closed down their jewellery shop in Preston due to the recession .......... hard times ...... have been researching acid etching and have ordered materials needed so I am designing pieces for that and if it goes well hopefully there will be a new range soon ..............

Bought these rings from Lucas Jack, sterling silver, faceted glass in great colours .... peridot, amethyst, baltic and black .... they look great, chunky but no too big, have put them on my website.

Had a good week, got lots done, Tom's birthday tomorrow so we are going to the Inn at Wray for dinner tonight and hopefully off for a walk/picnic tomorrow if the weather is good ...............

Forgot I had taken this picture when it snowed .... got geese, hens and cat prints!
Had a weird meeting yesterday which is becoming more clearer ... just when I decided on a direction something else comes along but this time I am going to try and achieve both ....... can't really elaborate as I haven't got my head round it yet.

Thusday 5 March 2009

Sterling silver wrap ring ...... textured and wraped around 3 times .... one of my first ever commissions .... I have resurrected it and put it back on my website.

Garden is full of sheep again .... most of the plants have been eaten now but think we have worked out where they are coming through ....

At home working all day ..... on call for First Responders last night, today, tonight and tomorrow night! Lots of gaps in the rota, definitely need more volunteers.

Wednesday 4 March 2009

Dali bangle to match ring - sterling silver - simple but satisfying as it has a moving bit which people like to fiddle with!
Went to Parent's evening last night everyone was pleased and results are good ...... just got to decided on options for GCSE before next Friday now ...... she still doesn't know what to do.
Snowing lightly at the moment ...... have joined Twitter ... not sure what it is all about but I enjoy 'tweets' .... read that it was for people with no identity!!

Running and walking going well ... can't believe I have had no alcohol/chocolate for 10 days which makes me sound like an alcoholic but you just take it for granted and reach for the wine bottle instinctively sometimes. I don't drink during the week anyway but I really look forward to it at the weekend .... just waiting for some positive consequences for my deprivation .... haven't seen any yet but hopefully I will losr a bit of weight or maybe not as I seem to eating more sweet stuff to make up for the chocolate!
