On Monday our friend Sue and I spent a good half day playing with recycled silver-plated EPNS, hammers, metal shears/snips, anvils, polishers etc etc.
Sue wanted to see what simple but beautiful things she could create. She thought she might make a pendant. Well the hours in the garage-studio resulted in a bit more than that - in the end Sue made 5 pendants.
And after a little encouragement she made these delightful set of beaten earrings with punched holes.
It is always great to see someone get into the metal and workshop. To see the smile on her face just showed how much Sue enjoyed the experience.
Now of course she is planning to buy a few basic tools to continue to make a few more pieces for herself when she returns home.
