Sunday 14th September

A Great Day

I had a great yesterday in South Manchester, I toddled over to meet up with other lampwork artists, and it was a very inspirational day. Lots of beady eye candy to drool over, and a chance to have a look at Kaz's amazing studio, which was so organised I couldn't believe another life maybe for me!! A lovely day, great people and well worth the trek, thank you Kaz, I'm looking forward to the next one.

I took along a little seahorse that I made over the summer, I was quite overwhelmed with all the interest he attracted. I've decided to make a series of them over the next few weeks and will launch them on my site as soon as they're ready.

This is 'Spirit' my first seahorse

After receiving Anouk's ring I thought I'd have a go myself and this is what I came up with, I was quite pleased for a first go. I think I'm going to have a try at a series of these too.

I'm sure you'll agree that this is simply 'Stunning' it was made by a very good friend of mine Marie, it's fired silver clay and is 99.9% fine silver. Marie will so be launching her website where she's planning to sell more fine silver items as well as jewellery using both her silver and lampwork beads from 'yours truly' although she did rather sneakily buy a few sets from other lampworkers yesterday....tut tut. :-)

Hopefully we'll see plenty more like this from Marie because it's beautiful.
Hope everyone's had a great weekend. Kate x
