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.
There are so many interesting techniques to learn... Enameling is one! I attended a course last weekend. We used transparent enamel which permits the pattern to be seen through the colours.
And patterns are easily made when you work with silverclay.
To the right is a view of the Mediterranean seen from the Paloma Beach at Cap Ferrat. Guess what inspired my choice of colours?
