It's been a while, so hello again!
Hi folks, been away for a few months due to my lovely husband being frighteningly ill with viral encephalitis and needing a lot of my time. He's on the mend but we're looking at 6-12 months before he's back to normal, whatever that is!
Anyway, I'm Mel and I make shinies in my purple shed in the Rhondda Valley of South Wales. I started using silver and copper clay but as the prices of silver in particular have got so silly lately, I'm using sheet and wire in both metals! I still use clay for accent bits though.
Anyway, looking forward to being part of the forum again and asking silly questions!
I am here: http://maps.google.com/maps?ll=51.645452,-3.470278
That must have been very frightening - hope he's well on the mend now.
I'm not far from you, in Cardiff (in a falling-down studio space - I'd love a purple shed! )
I've just regained access to the forum again, and had forgotten how fab it is,
Welcome back Mel,
Have always found your questions very helpful in the past so please keep asking them!
Hi Mel, welcome back, hope hubby gets better soon!
Hiya, welcome back and best wishes to your other half.
Welcome back Melanie. Here's wishing you both a brighter new year. Dennis.
Good to see you Mel and hope your hubbies health continues to improve x
