Today I was introduced to another use by the multi-talented Michelle Carpenter and we turned a silver spoon into a ring. Usually I would take photographs of the step by step process, but today was a rest for me after completing a difficult assignment. I had booked it before I had finished the final draft as an incentive and a promise of playtime. So I had been looking forward to giving the fingers which had typed twenty versions of an expanding academic essay a gift from the past. Her studio is a fascinating workshop brimming with vintage finds, books, buttons, vases and so much more. We chatted over lunch in her sun trapped garden and shared a little history of our own.
I would highly recommend this course as a present for anyone who loves jewellery, history or just being creative. Or for the person who has family silver which they don't like cleaning, learning how to make a ring is much more satisfying and can be rather therapeutic.
