I am a woman "in the flower of my age". My great hobby is making silver jewellery out of silver clay and sterling silver. Sometimes I sell some too, because I cannot use it all myself.
Other interests are SEVEN gorgeous grandchildren - nine with my husband's two, gardening, books, kayaking, photo...
I write this blog in English to keep up the language after my retirement. I was a teacher in English and French for 18 years (so I ought to have a blog in French too...) and assistant head at a school for 15 years.
My second blog shows my handmade silver jewellery.
Dreams of silver, dreams of gold...
Sterlingsilver with 18 karat goldthread.
Difficult soldering... zigzagpattern on a rounded bracelet.
The goldthread must follow the silver tightly.
I managed rather well - the flaws are not visible in the picture, I think...
