  • The Hubby makes jewellery!!

    Some of you may know that a couple of months ago the hubby booked us onto a silver jewellery course at Burton manor in Cheshire as a surprise. Madly Creating had been on the course and recommended it; she was right, it was fantastic. (By the way if you are reading this Madly, I mentioned you to Steve and he laughed! I think you made a big impression.)

    Anyway the hubby went with me because he fancied "having a go" and below is the first piece he made without any guidance, a silver bangle. He has never made any jewelllery before this course and I reckon he might be quite good at it. What do you think?

          That looks fab, especially for a first attempt - definitely the sort of thing that I'd wear

          Well done hubby for trying new things and showing his support in your chosen craft... looks like you might have some competition

            Well done him! Do you realise if I had posted 'my wife actually managed to unfasten a nut with a big spanner today' I would have been hung out to dry? Yay men!!

                crikey, that's really good and what a brilliantly supportive husband he is too.

                I immediately recognised the style and looked at the college course details and saw that the tutor is Stephen O'Keefe and realised that he wrote the first jewellery making book that I got, which has nice, straightforward instructions which are so userfriendly, he sounds like a brilliant teacher in real life too.

                  Absolutely brilliant. I would recommend the course, he really knows everything there is to know about silver jewellery and is such a good teacher.

                      Must not.. make.. comment.. But certainly there would be (literally) a 'nut related impact' of a comment like that!!

                      I like the bracelet - definitely as a first attempt. As with all these things, it takes loads of practice to get really good, but you should definitely encourage him to keep trying!

                            LMAO @ Peter

                            It's all about tone - silverjewelleryworkshop mentions her hubbys achievement with obvious pride (and perhaps a little envy) whereas 'actually managed' has more than a hint of pique
