Experimenting with Brass

I was hoping to bring you my Cup Cake decorating exploits in this post but unfortunately the Volcanic Ash Cloud has thrown a spanner in the works and I never made it to the class!
Well all the Easter Chocolate is nearly gone. I was lucky enough to receive some beautiful handmade eggs from Fortnum's (I have a great Hubby!!). This little number on the left was one of three in dark, white and milk chocolate. At the time of taking this photo only the milk one remained intact enough to pose for a photo!

Turning to Jewellery - I got hold of some natural Brass Wire and have started to experiment with some Viking Weave. I am loving the colour. Still working it on the stick so watch this space to see how it turns out.

My latest piece is this Pure Silver Necklace and Bracelet set. I am hoping to progress to incorporating some beads and other embellishments to the weave at some point. For the moment I'm loving the simplicity and elegance of the plain weave.

The weather has been beautiful this week! I think I feel a competition coming on!

Wait and see!
