Metalsmith Workshop


I attended my first metalsmith workshop yesterday at the Marketplace Theatre in Armagh. It was probably the best workshop I have attended so far. We were given a small piece of silver to work with (after drawing out our designs). I went with a design already drawn and I didn't change it all that much. I have only just finished it off as I wanted to use some gorgeous Jasper beads which I got from BDI in Bray. I would definitely recommend this class, I want to go again - now. (Even though when I woke this morning I thought I had no use of my arms!)

Thanks for your message on my blog. Didn't think I knew the name until I had a look at your blog and saw your photo and the photo of that amazing birdcage. Wasn't that you sitting in front of me at the MegaScrap classes? I also saw the birdcage IRL and I have to say it is soooooo beautiful. The jewelry is gorgeous too!
