I'm sworn to secrecy on my newest project, which is a commission. That is all I can say. No photographs, no details!
In between times, however, I've been making a piece I've been meaning to make for ages: an earring on the acid-folk-psyche song, "The Jeweller" by the band, "Pearls Before Swine". This is going to be a single earring and today I managed to get quite a lot of it made:

Working on the very last of the "Beneath the Skin" pieces today. As I was given the metals, the least I can do is try to use them up!
I spent the day cutting out the stand for a bowl:
The bowl is not really practical as it has a skull in the base!
