    Default This week's offerings

    A few new bits. Probably a bit too pretty, but I'm hoping some people will like them.

    I LOVE all of them but my favourite 2 are the cufflinks and the Helford pendant (gorgeous)
    I know what you mean about pretty but go gentle on yourself, you can't hit every target market with one range...
    My mum, Aunty and cousin would all love those (my stuffs generally too big n bold for them).
    Love the colours you've used as well

    Nice one!

    Carole, they are beautiful. Remind me of fairies, dragon flies wings and delicate lace.

    Hi carol i think these are stunning. i haven't enamelled on silver before but i've done it on copper. Do you counterenamel the backs? Do you use silver flux first , and are these enamels different to the copper ones? I hope you don't mind me asking, but I'm just learning

    Thanks very much. Glad you like them.

    Jille, they're on 1.3 silver so I don't counterenamel, though it can still be a bit dodgy at times. The enamels I use are mostly Soyer transparent enamels which can also be used on copper, though you probably use opaque enamels. I stick with colours I know will work on sterling - mostly blues and greens, which happen to be my favourites anyway.

    I really, really, really like these Carole - especially the first and third - the dragonfly is lovely too. I think they'll do really well for you
