Went a little trip to Edinburgh at the weekend and had a great time! Went to Bruntsfield and Morningside and stumbled across some lovely little boutiques, vintage shops, charity shops, jewellery shops and even a makers market! Was nice to see a side of the city I had never seen before! Afterwards I headed back into the city and wandered through the German market under the Christmas lights and I even got to see Santa! Was a great day in a lovely city.

One of my favourite materials to work with when making jewellery is wire. Here is two rings I recently made using silver wire. The first is a more structured piece with a Hematite cabochon. The second is a tube setting in wire with a Aquamarine faceted stone. Both rings have been oxidised to give a darker colour to the silver.

Where to start? I had such an amazing time when I was in New York although five days was just not long enough! I saw so many things and came back home feeling so inspired (and a little sad!) All good things do come to an end but I know that I will definitely visit again hopefully many many times!

I have always struggled to find somewhere comfortable that I could work from and it would have everything I need. So I decided to turn a little cupboard in my house into a work area where I could use my computer and have a place to draw.
I am soooo happy with how it has turned out! Its a perfect little place for me to work!
