Sneaky peek

I've just had some new photos done for the website, so here's a little peek of what's going to be in store for the coming season...this one's made from sea bamboo and gold-plated silver. Sea bamboo is a type of kelp with a bamboo like structure. It looks very much like coral and is a more environmentally friendly alternative.

Happy first day of summertime! It's making me a bit grumpy though I must admit - I want my hour back!

I'm working of some jewellery pieces today. I like listening to the radio when I'm making things, it's nice to engage two different parts of the brain at once. And making is a rather solitary business, so it's nice to hear a human voice.

Lately I've been listening to This American Life, which has over ten years' worth of archives to listen to. I really enjoyed the last section of this show. It's
Russell Banks reading an edited version of his short story "Sarah Cole: A Type of Love Story," which appears in its full version in his collection The Angel on the Roof. He has a wonderful reading voice.

On my balcony microclimate a couple of weeks ago. Come back sunshine!

Something nice to wake up to.
