So, I took another tack - at 84, my mother who is visiting me in the UK for 4 weeks, has her own routine, which I have allowed her to continue, in spite of being in an alien environment. Not a word did I say about my jewellery making, or my day job, I just continued my thing - twiddling away with my wire and pliers in silence - until 48 hours into her visit, she was sitting next to me, checking out the photographs I was editing, making suggestions and obviously wanting to see more - and then one day I caught her moving the mouse all by herself, with no prompting ( she has never used a computer before) - and checking out the stuff on my website, which I happened to leave open when I nipped to the kitchen for a cuppa - gotcha!!

I picked out some beautiful agate carved leaves and made a little necklace out of them along with some faceted tear drops. I had held a couple back to make earrings, but unfortunately the stem of one of them broke when I tried to string it on wire - so I turned the single one left over into a pendant with some wire leaves.
That is all for now - next week is the turn of the grandsons pressies - boys are easy to buy for, so that should be much easier on my little tootsies. Catch you all next week, xx
