The reason I have been a bit quiet this week is I have had a bit of a treat. I have attended a three day class with the wonderful Terry Kovalcik learning something of his techniques for making tiny hinges and also for decorating using silver paste.
Here is my lovely silver locket, not quite finished yet but I am thrilled with the things I have learned. Of course I now need to set aside some time to practice this. Sometimes you meet people or take a class just at the right moment and this is definitely one of those. I have lots of ideas in my sketchbooks and I feel this class gives me a little push in the direction I wanted. Thank you to Terry for his quiet and thoughtful manner as well as for sharing his techniques.
I am now having a few fun days out with my talented friend Lesley Messam and her husband Keith. We have had a few short trips out, visited Gillies Jones Glass and Alan Davis Stained Glass and we have had a bit of studio play time. Today we will probably pop over to the Moors Centre at Danby – I just wish the sun would shine and then it would be perfect!
