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.
This ring was a difficult project with many different materials that should be burnt together. I thought I had managed at last and I wrote about it in this blog.
However the glasscab fell off . I turned out that it was not properly burnt. I tried again a couple of times at a low temperature but with bad result.
I was getting desperate!
I put the ring in the artbox oven for longer time and at a higher temperature... Come what may!
Well - now the result was a disaster... The ring had melted down... Look at the picture to the right.
Well, such is life! I will try again but this time I shall have to consult my
pmc teacher Kristina...
