Pave your dream...

I have naughtily bought a silver smiting kit, even though it was christmas yesterday and i received some lovely presents. I wanted to buy myself something practical to work towards Velvet Feather. Me and my dad have literally just finished melting some of my old silver (it was messy and we did it with a blow torch outside the house) very rustic and home-made... we have made a little skull ring, i am pretty chuffed with it, it was set in a hand-made mould. So hopefully with my new kit i will be able to experiment more.....yay for dad being a scientist/paviour and being able to help me with this new step with my shop. I wanted to share with you one of my favourite designers you have probably all heard of her and if you haven't you really should of  Pamela Love is one of my favorite makers/designers her work is really beautiful. I love hearing about her making process and what she wears. Have a little watch.



  1. Love that quote, its so right! Good luck with your smiting, cant wait to see all the beautiful jewellerry you create in the future! Xxx

  2. How exciting, i'm on the hunt for a silver smithing kit as I want to learn too! Where did you get your one from?

  4. Ahhh I've always loved Pamela Love so thankyou soooo much for posting this video! I love to read interviews by her, I find her so totally inspiring and just watching that makes me want to get all my jewellery bits out and start making some new pieces.

    Your silver work sounds exciting, I've always wanted to experiment with silver but just don't have the money for it right now. Would love to see the skull ring!


  5. Ooh wish I could do something as talented as silverwork! Look forward to seeing some lovely jewellery on here in the future :)
