As I was saying...
It seems that necklaces with little flags on are quite the thing and I've wanted to make one for a month or two. Silver clay can be a tricky mistress though. There's physics to be considered. At first I made attachment holes in the little flags. They hung too low on the chain and the holes ruined the look. Then I incorporated the wire into each little pennant so that it became part of the chain and it seemed to work.
All I need now is a troupe of tiny pixies with little trestle tables and an urge for a street party. Failing that this will be on my stall this Saturday, at the Pick N Mix Makers Market in Holt, Norfolk and something similar may appear on etsy soon.
I realised that as well as the dining room table, my kitchen hob is often part of my creative space. I took this snap last night whilst I was cooking tea. I'm steaming carrots, frying little homemade burgers and firing silver bunting at the same time. All the major foodgroups are represented.
There are more creative spaces over at Kootoyoo.
The slight blog stutter last night was caused by a loud woofing incident, leading to a slip of the fingers whilst I was typing. The moral? Do not blog near a noisy dog.
