New Cabinet!!

My friend Hannah found this lovely little cabinet by the side of the road, it had a sign next to it saying "free to good home, in need of TLC". It's had a make over and looks very pleased with itself. Now home to my new collection of bespoke bookmarks to be either be sold on their own or with a vintage book. Books include fairy tales, history, poetry etc, the bookmarks shown have quotes taken from the books.

What I'm Making Today........

I'm working on a wedding present for my friends Ced and Marie, whilst testing out an idea for a collection that I have. The piece is made of two separate bookmarks, when you bring them together they form a heart with the lyrics from 'I'll be Your Mirror' by Lou Reed.

Commission of the Week

Commissioned by a metal detector for his wife, this 22ct solid gold denture was found on the Island.It wasn't the most pleasant or easiest of jobs but satisfying all the same. Lots of rolling mill action and brute force. I added silver to pick out the detail in the lily stamens. Had just enough to make a pair or matching studs. Couldn't save the tooth!

Broken Wing

Things have slowed down a little since breaking my wrist.

I've just had to cancel a trade show in New York (not to mention the free BA Business Class flight, argh, forever destined to fly economy)...

The up-shot being that i can absorb changes of the on-coming summer and dust off my sketch books in preparation for some new work....yay!
