Silver and ceramics, forest floors, and fordite-based whimsey

So, I’ve listed the last of this initial batch of silver pieces on Etsy. Amongst them were a small handful of pieces made with silver and my ceramics. There’s this more elaborate pair of earrings which I made using off-cuts and stuff.

There was also some simple drops with reticulated silver up top.

These both sold quickly. I need to do more of this combining of silver and ceramics. I’ve just got to work out how to be both working at the silver and working on ceramics at the same time. I also listed this ring, which is one of my favourites. I wanted to achieve a kinda impression of forest floors…

…with lichen and tendrils and moss and feathers…. but nothing too fairy-ish, if you know what I mean. There will definitely be more along the same lines. I have a crazy big ring nearly finished with similar embellishment.

Finally, there’s this fordite brooch. First brooch I ever did make! When I came up with the exclamation mark design, I just had to make it.

So that’s the lot for the time being, although I already have a fresh pile of silver things just waiting to be oxidised and set and finished, along with a new crop of circle rings that are in the works. And, on top of this, I have a lot of assemblage earrings waiting to be photographed and listed. And then there’s that whole ceramics business that needs some attention… Phew – this making stuff thing is never done…
