One of my students made my day today by giving me a load of old silversmithing hammers which she had bought as part of a job-lot of tools from a workshop which was closing down!


It's Hammer Time! - 2


Other than that, I've completed my "L'heure de la Fée Verte", the Post-Apocalyptic Cocktail Ring for the Sipping of Absinthe and my entry for "Suspended in Green". I have to own to being quite pleased with the result of this:


L'heure de la Fée Verte - 1




L'heure de la Fée Verte - 3


The top is a Victorian bottle-stopper - in keeping with the absinthe theme - and there is a "hidden" orange sapphire inside, which can only be seen by peeking between the supports of the head, a contrasting surprise. For the competition, it is required to produce a "retail piece" which references the main piece, so I made an absinthe spoon which can be worn as a pendant:

I now have to complete my "secret" commission for a wedding on the 14th of September, as well as arranging the exhibits on "Scotland the What" on Crafthaus.
