  • Proud of my Students :)

    Look what the Gail (GBell) her daughter & Jenny made today!

    One had tried silver-clay and been disappointed with the
    results while the other two had never had a go at all......
    So these stunning coloured pieces are their very first pendants,
    their first time soldering earring posts, first stone setting,
    first use of LOS patina and first time using UV resins!!

    So proud of them, they worked really hard and learnt lots
    very quickly. Hope they pop along soon & take a bow

            So glad you both got back safely Gail
            For those who would like to congratulate her pieces personally....

            Gails is the swirly heart with topaz blue stone, the fabulous antiqued sea urchin
            (one of the button moulds we did with two part moulding compound) and the decorated oblong.

            Cesca did the funky resin star charm and the gorgeous two layer
            heart pendant with flush set pink cz. The only trouble is they now
            don't want to sell them, they want to keep them

                      Beautiful, the fact that the students did so well must be a credit to the teaching skills of the tutor

                      Well done everyone! (think I would want to keep them too)

                        Really nice designs!

                        This is really inspiring, I would love to make Silver Clay jewellery, but will probably have to wait once I have a stable saving fund!

                          I made molds with the molding compound last night, then used a spiral shell from a holiday in Greece and a chunky star that i had to make the molds with, then realised how deep id made them when i used up a whole pack of silver on just the two things!!

                          will sand and fire them tonight, should have two chunky pendants then!

                            arghhhh nightmare

                            didnt have a good night last night for various reasons, but one thing..

                            I managed to break the star when trying to drill a hole in it and then dropped the shell after spending about an hour carefully filing it, didnt realise id dropped it, made a bail for it, then ran over the shell with the wheels of my chair and snapped it in two.

                            Luckily id saved the filings in a tub and made some slip and repaired it, but now back to square one and drying and filing

                              I really enjoyed the course, was exhausted when I got home, Bet you (gbell)were after a 4 hour journey home, was worth it though. Thank you Nic for your patiance and sharing your skills. I made a fingerprint pendant monday, need a few more tools, I love it, Its so much fun and each time getting better.
                              Thanks again
