What's on my work bench?
- February 2011 -
I often get asked what I've been working on and so, to satisfy the curiosity of a few inquiring minds (you know who you are!) I've decided to add a new note and some pictures from my work bench.
These days, I'm limited to a 2 meter square work station so these are taken from my kitchen table.

These spoons are frustrating the heck out of me. I *wanted* to use them as back plates for huge chunks of sea glass set in fine silver bezel - alas, the silver plate refuses to co-operate. As a fellow jewelry artist told me, "Trying to solder silver plate is like trying to fill up a cuss jar!" I have to agree...
My sea glass - setting the glass in silver bezel was a bit challenging as none of the glass is uniform in shape or thickness. This makes things very tricky! Thankfully, I love my sea glass so the finished product made me very happy!
