Christmas already!

I can't believe how long it's been since I last wrote this.. the time just flies by! I am having a quiet day for once, perhaps I'll even get some torch time today :-)

I didn't do too badly in the christmas fairs, but not nearly as well as last year.. however, I have sold quite a bit since then, so I feel they have been worth it if only to get myself known.

I had a commission from a friend, all completed now, I had to learn how to make brooches and also silver core beads in the shape of a heart, which is trickier than it sounds! My first efforts looked nice but they had the same amount of glass above the hole as under, so they wouldn't stay the right way up. All sorted now, I'm thrilled with the results!
