Beautiful Handmade Statement Necklaces and other Fabulousness from Neena Shilvock - Inspirations and Designs From the Week Gone by
Went to London to a meeting last week - the 'day job' intrudes again - but hey, nice to have more than one iron in the fire. Went to the Portobello Road after the meeting and met this woman making and selling wire work rings out of a small stall - was wearing this necklace that I was 'test driving' - I was so pleased cos she really liked it - obviously she knew I wasnt going to buy from her once I said I had made the piece myself, but we had a very nice chat. Bought some lovely shells from a shop and some porcelain beads - very pretty. I am now totally addicted to beads and shiny baubles - bringing out the magpie in me - want, want, want!!
Also took some photography lessons - how to photograph small shiny objects and now own a mini tripod - only 6 inches tall and have bought a 'cube' - this project is growing and growing! Am off to a Precious metal clay class next weekend at 'In The Studio' in Kegworth - will learn to make my own focal pieces and hope to branch out into polymer clay - help, I need a bigger workstation - a tray in my lap with a few pliers on it wont do anymore.
Thanks to all those who have 'liked' my page - have a look at the website too, and tell your friends.
