Venturing into silver

Over the past few months, I have been venturing into the world of making silver jewellery. I have only done a few hours of lessons here and there, but have really enjoyed myself and can't wait to start making more on my own. My tutor has been the very talent Janet Richardson.

I have posted previously some of my silver makes but here is one of my latest.

This pendant is actually a commision, a lovely lady saw the one I had made myself and was wearing and asked me to make one for her - what a confidence boost. Hopefully I will be making more silver items soon - I just need to pluck up a bit of confidence. Oh and buy some solder and pickle and ..........

Thank you all ladies, I am having sooo much fun using silver - I just need a confidence boost. Hopefully there will be more silver to come in the future.
