Another cruise around the internet I found this website/blog (http://www.squidoo.com/the-charm-farm-shop) where the jeweller has lots of lovely little charms like this one all over the joint! Had been inspired by things that she loves! The website also gives three words in which they describe this skittle-tastic charms : Unique, Quirky and Fun. So ture!
Three KA-UTE wee rings, I found these on another jewellery blog (www.makingjewellery.com) who had sourced them from the company Rust,made in England. They have made from recycled old vintage silver charms and then mounted on lovely rings. LOOJK AT THE WEE PEOPLE! :D

a sneak peak of my "Flocks Up" piece that was inspired by Christoph Zellweger. Pretty smart but a wee bit creepy aswell, got a lot of em . . . interesting feedback from other students in my class :P
From previous posts you can see how I cast my thumb, then I put together a brass box with a lip to fit the thumb in. Followed by the very fun technique of flocking! I will have to get a better photo developed but thought I would update the virtual world!

This is absolutly SLAMMING! This tiny caravan was developed for 'The Royal Wedding' so that elderly people were able to stay out all night without sleeping on the street. It has been designed to be towed by a mobility scooter, has a full sized single bed, 19" television, drinks cabinet and a wee tea station! Measuring at 2m by 75cm and can be all yours for a winning £5,500! I want one just so I can say I have a caravan! SOOOOOO WINNING!
For this project our class were asked to design a ring and then swap our design using the most reliable way, picking names out of a hat, so that whosever name you got, you made their ring! This is the ring i made, designed by Karen Smith! I have to say I really enjoyed this project, it was pretty relaxing just following instructions. I got the feeling that I had to do my best work aswell as I didn't want to disappoint my designer with my workshop skills! Overall one of my favourite project.

This is a project from earlier on this year that I posted quite a bit about. Experimenting with porcelain throwing contrasting metal and knitting. I think it turned out pretty well! What do you think?? The main piece is the round hand held cup with the knitted wall and the others were samples but they make quite a nice wee collection!
