Time for texture

Recently most of the jewellery that has been made at my work bench has featured smooth shiny sterling silver. I do love the result of hammering, sanding and polishing. However, I was very pleased last week to receive a commissioned order for one of my 'hammered circle bracelets' with a textured finish.

And here's what the same design looks like with a smooth silky finish...

  8. Kristin:

    I am a beader who is always looking for beautiful hammered pendants for my work. I am very excited to have found your work in my search for artists with work with silver.

    I'm throwing my name in the hat for your drawing. What I would do with a voucher is buy a pair of earrings for my lovely daughter, who has just passed through a very difficult year in which she has unexpectedly had to single handedly raise her infant son while also working to support them both. What a great idea this is!

    And I will be back to make purchases after selling some of my own work.
