November 10, 2009

Here is a nice pendant I made today. I have done more opal work than normal lately. I have also been making a lot of schlock jewellery, and I am not going to post it here. No ways I put front street stuff on my blog and have the whole world laugh at me. The Dino […]

A Bangle, A Pendant, An Exibition and the Dino War Machine

November 6, 2009

Here is a nice bangle I made on commission for a lady from Scotland. Set with a Nigerian blue tourmaline that I cut last year. She also bought the blue tourmaline that I posted on in my last post, so they go nicely together. We don’t get many Scottish people on the island, mostly Americans. […]

Of Sunsets, Signs and Cockroaches

October 30, 2009

Sunset from the top of my shop building. Nice one. I have to fix a few thing around the shop. And I am not talking about jewellery. My sign was one. It was dying and looking tatty. Taken off, and a major grill (shiver) mission, believe me….. Rotten wood and all. I had made it out […]

Folding Cross and Making the Proof of Concept.

August 21, 2009

This is the first cross I made. I filed the pieces 45 degrees, quick and dirty. Which DID fold up like this–but very fugly. I made several types of hinges to see which one was best. . Remember, all this stuff is taken on the fly and is also unfinished, so it looks kak. So […]

Of Balls, Rings, Sounds and Optical Illusions.

August 8, 2009

I carved this ring out of Ferris purple wax. Sometimes, when the ‘master pattern’ is complicated, I make a silicone mould out of the wax. Just in case I screw the cast up. Which happens more that I would like to admit to my mummy. But this one was biff- bam, thank you ma’am. OK, not […]
