LIMPETS!



Just some of the limpets collected at the weekend & the large one found on Porthmeor....

These 3 are going to have moulds made...
looking forward to making new pieces &
I've decided they should have a reference to where they were found

so...
Small Prussia
Large Prussia
Large Porthmeor

Hedgehogs on the way....

FINALLY! I've sat down at the workbench & made little hedgehogs which will be made into earrings, pendants & cufflinks in time for Christmas....

I had done the design last year!



Saw piercing the sections from copper & brass...why is it some blades will last for ages then the next few go 'ping' one after the other??????



Assembled ready fro cleaning & soldering on the sprews....
Should have some completed versions in the next couple of weeks.

ORANGE!

Yay! Orange is one of my favourite colours so I'm looking forward to a month of finding images around the house & when I'm out & about....

The first picture is a detail from my new charity shop find...orange jumper dress - just right when it gets chilly (which might be this week if the forecast is right?).  The owl is a money box (nothing in him at the moment!) & the spade was from Southwold...lots of the shops had them on display as part of an arts trail last year I think it was?




Beautiful Ester & Erik candles from the fab Hus & Hem in Ledbury (they do mail order!)




Free kit in this month's Mollie Makes magazine to make 2 foxy brooches!
