Christmas bits and bobs

Hello all,

I hope I find you well today. Not long now until Christmas, I hope you're all as excited as I am! Above are a few pieces that I have made recently, all are for a Christmas sale (apart from the cuff links) that my class are holding from the 10th - 14th of December in the reception area of Duncan of Jordanstone.

The top piece as a single small irregularly shaped fresh water pearl on a thin silver ring. Followed by cuff links that I have made as a Christmas gift for my Grandad, again with fresh water pearls, but much larger this time. After these we have 3 red garnet faceted beads set in silver cups and a silver bead to top them off mounted in an unusual triangular formation. Then we come on to some silver spheres with saw pierced bird silhouettes, the larger of the two measures about 5cm across and is oxidised then brushed to give a smokey effect. Finally, bringing up the rear we have a medium sized (about 1cm across) fresh water pearl set into a silver cup that is held in the middle of a thin silver ring. This piece was originally going to go on sale in the Christmas show but I sold it last night, so I guess I shall have to order a few more pearls and make some more in time.

Anyhoo, it has been a long day and it will be another long one tomorrow so good night to you all and see you soon. x
