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.

Alabaster from Luxor, Egypt.

Working with alabaster is no easy task, but the craftsmen are very skilful. The handmade things are so much more beautiful and elegant. It's thin - you can use it as a lampshade for example. The last picture shows machine made objects.

Vi har varit på samma alabasterfabrik! Synd det inte var samtidigt! Gjorde ni några fynd???

Vi köpte inget där faktiskt. Däremot köpte vi ett par papyrusrullar i papyrusfabriken - du var säkert där också! Har en bild, som jag ska lägga upp.
