A Gift From The 1st Workshop Of The Year

We’ve just finished running our first workshop for 2014, it’s always a slight shock to the system after the winter break but it was Caroline’s 2nd visit to La Vidalerie and we were looking forward to seeing her again. I’ll post photos of some of her creations in my next post.

Before leaving Caroline gave me a couple of pieces of beautiful fluorite, I’ve made the first piece into a pendant.

Artisan Silver & Fluorite Pendant

Artisan silver & fluorite pendant oxidised to bring out the detail.

I was in two minds about oxidising it but it really was crying out for a more sombre (the bright silver really didn’t suit the stone).  Thanks so much Caroline for the lovely stone – I hope you like what I did with it 😉
