A sure sign that summer has arrived is when Ronaldo the hot chestnut seller in London Street swaps his stand for his ice cream cart – see my sketch below.
Talking of carts…. I now have one of my own, to wheel to my silversmithing
class. It was getting to be such hard work carrying everything in on a Tuesday
that I decided that this particular Boudicca needed a chariot. At least it’s a
plain black jobbie – I drew the line at a tartan one! It caused much teasing
from husband but my back will thank me in the weeks to come.
Decided to have a few days break from my bluebell
embroidered necklace to make a beaded garland.
I just had to put in these
fabulous metal flowers, I have given some pink centres and some have blue ones.
Ordered some really lovely quality clasps from Cooksons – 13mm long sterling
silver and then made my own sterling silver rings which I hammered to work
harden them. It gave the garland a lovely quality finish. To see more photos
