Band-aid Ring

This is the story of a ring that needed to be rescued.
I cast a lot of my stuff. Casting does not always mean easier!! It is still time consuming. So when a ring or a cast element does not come out right it is still frustrating. This ring was about to be thrown into the melting pot (the beauty of metal when some thing doesn't work out). I had an idea, maybe it could be rescued.
As you can see it has a big hole in it.

I filed the hole so I could insert a piece of metal 

 I then soldered a piece of gilding metal (a mixture of copper and brass) into the space.

 I then cut and filed it away to be part of the ring.

I chose the gilding metal because I wanted the mending to be obvious. We all have a scar or two!!

Nugget Rings

Here are my new Nugget Rings in bronze and silver and silver. I have been playing around with finishes and have polised one bronze nugget and left the other silver and bronze nuggets matt.
I am very happy with how they turned out. Watch this space for more...

Markets Galore

So I am very excited to be taking part in the new Market At The Square in Umhlanga tomorrow night. It is in the lovely Granada Square, should the weather hold. Don't despair if it doesn't then it will be in the basement parking.

And I have been invited to be part of the Wonder Market at the Chris Saunders Park, also in Umhlanga. So Umhlanga is the place to be this weekend. Looking forward to seeing you all.
