The Rain, Ring and a Bangle

December 13, 2009

The before and oncoming rain outside my shop window. If you look carefully, you’ll see there is a rainbow. I ran outside with my new gold testing machine, but nothing I tested reacted the way gold would. Maybe it was the rain that interfered with the tester, I don’t know. Oh well, better luck next […]

The Dino War Machine is (temporally) Finished

December 6, 2009

Finally finished. Ok, temporally finished would be a better way to describe it, because I am still going to make a glass and brass egg for the Machine. But that is next years work. I am now officially suffering from project fatigue. I made the pictures slightly bigger than normal when you click on them, […]

Waxes, Cast Rings, Shells and Gears

November 26, 2009

I carved these three rings in Matt purple wax. I also have been making moulds of shells and injecting Dino War Machine gears. They were cast into silver. Silver is the easiest metal to cast for me, so much so that I cast three master wax patterns in one flask. Casting masters simultaneously in one flask […]

An Opal Pendant and the Dino War Machine

November 10, 2009

Here is a nice pendant I made today. I have done more opal work than normal lately. I have also been making a lot of schlock jewellery, and I am not going to post it here. No ways I put front street stuff on my blog and have the whole world laugh at me. The Dino […]

A Bangle, A Pendant, An Exibition and the Dino War Machine

November 6, 2009

Here is a nice bangle I made on commission for a lady from Scotland. Set with a Nigerian blue tourmaline that I cut last year. She also bought the blue tourmaline that I posted on in my last post, so they go nicely together. We don’t get many Scottish people on the island, mostly Americans. […]

This is an 18ct ring set with […]

Of Sunsets, Signs and Cockroaches

October 30, 2009

Sunset from the top of my shop building. Nice one. I have to fix a few thing around the shop. And I am not talking about jewellery. My sign was one. It was dying and looking tatty. Taken off, and a major grill (shiver) mission, believe me….. Rotten wood and all. I had made it out […]

The wood base, which is Southern African Cherry wood, was finished yesterday and fitted into the copper and brass […]
