I was persuaded by other Mac using friends that wordpress was the way to go, and that blogger just didn’t cut it. So, I have given it a shot, played around, brought stuff over, but I’m afraid I just can’t get on with it, so, this is it, going home to blogger.
If you would like to meet up again do come and visit:
peace and happiness
and more than a few smiles
be with you on your journey.
I just adore granulation and love torching silver. There is something inherently satisfying in having total control over something solid, turning it to liquid and then deciding where it should go, Playing god with metal ?? lol. I also am trying out different types of adjustable ring, life is so much easier when the ring can just be adjusted slightly rather than completely made, so here are a couple of try outs, not brilliant but ok.

The Uncountables at the Edge of the Wedge
Once again a fab night with the boys. Luc, Lewis, Alan and Tom. Tuesday night isn’t really a night I ever fancy going out, and I had to truly drag myself out, but was so glad I did. The boys are getting better and better and The Edge of the Wedge is a great venue. They have ditched the slows and have moved on to more lively stuff which works really well. I have to say Lewis on bass is so animated now, he never used to move, he reckons it was because the neck of his bass was so long , but he is just ‘Mr jump round the stage’. Luc I have never seen doing solo guitar slots and I didn’t know he was such a good guitarist, the lovely Alan is just a joy to watch – he enjoys himself so much. Tom, what a talented man Tom the drummer is, and why is the drummer always in the back, in the dark so no one can see them? They never get any glory but without drummers well – what do you have?
What always makes these evenings so good are the students, they really know how to enjoy themselves, I wish I was that uninhibited!
In time for Spring (which is just round the corner – my bones tell me so – is the ‘Love Grows’ range. I love the Old English feel to this, with the trellis growing up behind the satin finished cushion hearts. Personally I love great big chunky things but know a lot of people like smaller items, so the pendants come in three different sizes, the earrings are either long hanging earrings or smaller stud earrings. They are finished and photographed, but not up online yet. I think they’ll be available in Chichester from next week. (Will say for definite when I know). Should be available at the weekend on the website.
Someone said to me the other day happiness is defined as follows:
Sensual happiness (taste , good food, music etc)
Having a talent or a skill and using it in some way
Believing in that skill and spending a lot of time practicing it.
Well I have to say as a definition I like that. I know for the last however many years I have felt a deep contentment, which is really odd as in many ways life has been a bit topsy turvy and not 100 percent secure, but if it follows the above definition, that would explain it. I thoroughly enjoy, like really enjoy a lot of junk food, but when I say I enjoy it, I mean I can look forward the whole day to savouring some totally junk, no value bag of corn starch modified msg’d snack. Particularly on Saturday night – late watching a pile of total pants on TV. And then comes the jewellery. Since allowing that to take over much of my life, I have, although often completely knackered, just not been able to stop. Almost an obsession, but how satisfying when it is finished, when it has been photographed and put online and then when it sells, now that is what I call satisfaction. Add to all that, the love of a gorgeous, sweet, kind darling man, who really could ask for more. So yeah, defined as above, I am ecstatic.
