Wow, great weekend

I spent my weekend in Suffolk, and attended the Your Creative Journey workshops. I had the most fantastic time, if you are thinking about going then do, you will definately not regret it.

I went to Nicks class to make a clock and then Heidi's to make a silver pendant using Silver clay - it is amazing stuff! Here is my clock. I had decided to use a colour that is totally different from what I would normally use - which is browns,greens etc. So I used Blue. I also went for the less is more approach, as normally I would cram bits on all over the place!
I managed to get two pendants out of my piece of silver clay. The shell was done in a mould and the other pendant was just freeform. The larger one I am going to add some dangly bits and beads when I eventually decide on a colour.

it was such a pleasure to spend the session with you and share the secrets of the silver with ooohhs and arrrgghhhhhs when it was finally revealed from "clay" to silver and your two pieces are beautiful even with my minor heart wrenching hiccup ;0)- your clock is also awesome
