These guys came off my bench recently and are available at e.g.etal
two bad photos taken by me and here's a good one taken by Phoebe Porter courtesy of e.g.etal
They're made from an old biscuit tin and faceted garnet beads

I have very stiff joints in my neck and I've had them for years. They get better after quite a few trips to the physio but they always get worse again. And that's because I'm a jeweller. The way I sit, the way I work and the way I'm always too involved in what I'm doing to stop and S-T-R-E-T-C-H! I know I'm not the only jeweller to suffer from this. But I just wanted to complain because it hurts to roll my rolling mills at the moment because my stiff neck has upset my rotator cuff and my shoulders don't work properly.
And here's some new work
empty reef earrings
peridot reef brooch - the photo does not give a good indication of the luscious green of the peridots. You'll have to physically go to e.g.etal for a better look. And the anemone is from a biscuit tin with old reef illustrations.
