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.
I am finally satisfied with the three hearts for Irma, Junie and Ida.
They are made of silverclay. I have worked hard with the finish. I want the surface to look brushed
I also made a big heart in sterling silver with the names of my grandchildren on. I just bought letterstamps - it is pretty difficult to get the letters even and in the right place. Takes some practice!
