After gross negligence of my jewellery and my blog i have returned! i have cut down my hours and am now on a part time contract giving me time to realise what it is i want from life! The phrase i keep telling myself is to work to live, not live to work. My jewellery workshop has come a long way, from the sorry state it was at the begining of summer (as you can see above). There is still major work to be done, but this will have to be next summers project...plastering, re-roofing, painting etc. this is not best done in winter weather. but thats fine with me as i quite like it in its rough and ready state!
My big sister ruth got married to her lovely fiance daniel on november the first in edinburgh castle, it was a gorgeous winters day. I had the very scary task of making their wedding rings...no pressure! hehe but it all went smoothly (eventually). and I felt so proud to be able to make their day even more special. Ruths ring was a platinum band with 5 diamonds gypsy set, and daniel's was a plain 18ct white gold band. I'll try get a photo of the rings and upload them onto blogger when they come back from their honeymoon!
