Where does the time go?

Love Is In The Air Necklace
Sterling Silver & Murano Glass Heart

Wow, it has been almost 3 months since I last blogged. I can't believe how quickly this year is going! Last time I blogged there was still some snow on the ground and now the weather is beautiful (mainly!) and I can't remember the last time I wore a coat!!!

Love Struck
Simple Sterling Silver & Karen Hill Tribe Silver earrings
In the last couple of months, I have had a birthday, booked 2 holidays (Mexico and Ireland towards the end of the year) and started a new silversmith class which I am loving. I did one a few years ago which I stopped half way through as I was sick of spending the whole lesson waiting for the teacher to be free for advice and guidance!! With my new one, the teacher gives us very simple wire work projects that we can do if we are waiting for her which are great and the class is much smaller. When I have finished some pieces, I will post a picture!

The above and below necklaces were a birthday present for one of my sister's. They are both on long Sterling Silver ball chains. I saw her today and she was wearing the Mooreland necklace and it looked great on. I love seeing people wearing my creations, it gives me a real buzz!
