Trip to Birmingham

I took a little trip to Birmingham today to pick up some more silver and a couple of
new enamel colours (the postage for these enamels are £11!) so whilst there I did a bit of shopping too :)

Goodbye £45.
Hello Overdraft.
7.5cm Square of Silver and new enamels.

Sobar Thursday

So Wednesday nights are usually my night out for the week. 
But not this week I instead chose to go to 
an all you can eat world buffet with a friend, 
Which meant I spent thursday feeling fresh and
 sober for a change.

After a 2 hour tutorial I went into the workshop and made these.

Silver Time

So these are my first pieces in silver!
I was so worried I was going to mess these up but 
they have turned out all good :)
Ive yet to enamel them as I don't want to ruin them
 before doing some enamel
samples of some of the silver scraps / speak to my tutor.
As all I could afford was this tiny 5cm square
piece of silver Ive tried to get as much out of 
it as possible.I decided to make one largish 
pair of earrings and two smaller pairs
I still have a tiny bit of silver left over so 
will need to order some more 
before I can make any more.

This is the flat before piece

And here is the Finished after photo!

Two smaller pairs of earrings.

Im a little bit proud and chuffed with myself today :)

Enamelled Earrings

So this week I've been making some earrings!
They vary in size from diddy little green ones to huge (about 5cm) pink ones
Ive had quite a bit of fun making this!
As these are samples I've only made them in copper 
so unfortunately they cant be worn :(
Although I have ordered some silver so I can make some proper ones.

Busy few weeks at uni recently so I haven't had much time for blogging.
Here are a few of the stencilling samples I did which have worked quite well.
