See my nice little play on words here!! Over the weekend I had a little play ~ in between working and everything else that goes on over the weekend ~ thank goodness for my patient husband and daughter!! Ever since I first started creating jewellery I haveplayed around with sea glass ~ drilling and wrapping but I really wanted to set it in sterling silver ~ finally I (with a little encouragement from my friend (Clare of Stone Design) I actually had a go.
Each piece I played around with a little more ~ this one (ABOVE) is actually one that went wrong! I oxidised it and the LOS got underneath the glass and while it was wet I actually thought I had completely ruined it ~ but although not perfect is perfectly wearable ~ must remember to oxidise before setting glass next time ;)
Finally this one I am happier with but oh so many pebbles of silver did I melt and solder ~ it was a fight come the end to get them to stay!! BUt I love the organic nature of them all ~ the top pne I actually gave to my friends Mum ~ who used to collect sea glass for me and leave me bags on my doorstep ~ so today I have a big plastic box full of all different shapes and sizes ~ so watch out you'll probably see more arriving ~ hopefully rings too :)
