This is a piece I've been working on lately. There's still a lot to be done as I still need to add my designs but I'm quite pleased with it so far as the silversmithing techniques I've picked up have been largely self-taught from books and videos. It's a bit daunting but I've enjoyed experimenting with the different tools and tricks of the trade. I'm also working on a larger bowl though I'm afraid the silver may be flawed, however it may just become a quirk in design of the bowl. We'll see...

Well this week has been a bit hectic and I'm beginning to wonder if I'll have any time for sleep. However it's been a good kind of busy and I'm really looking forward to the degree show, only a matter of weeks now.
The image above is of a ring I made of re-used objects. The gold cross is from an old earring as is the green stone, and the magnifying lens is from an old watch. I hope to make a couple more rings like this, although sourcing the watch glass has been a bit of an issue. Fingers crossed....
