Colourful Aluminium Jewellery

What a wonderful course. Lindsay thank you so much I learnt a lot.

Sad though I managed to start a heavy cold the day of the course so my brain was a tad cotton wool ish!

The other folks on the course were great. There were teachers, jewellery students, lace makers, artists. Just a wonderful mix of clever and artistic folks and so many wonderful ideas. Should have taken my camera because the creations were great.

Sorry folks you get to see just mine!

That is a bangle, we all made one of those, easy metal working skills and a large space to explore colour wise. Hmmmm not sure about this one didnt quite work as I thought it would!

Next a pendant, and finally I managed to learn to rivet properly and woot it worked. Thse are three 5mm spaced ovals. Lindsay thank you for teaching me this I always thought I was a dumbo at rivetting when I was learning but you made it seem so easy.

Last I just cut a load of discs and created a charm bracelet just to show all the different colours I used.

All in all a great course and now to get over this real nasty cold thanks to my boss!!
