Om mig

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.

Sterling silver and silverclay

As silver clay is quite expensive it is advantageous to combine the materials. In this open ring the elephant is made of silverclay and the ring of sterling silver. To make the clay stick to the sterling you have to heat the latter several times.
