Making a cast iron and diamond ring

Talks about plagiarising etc reminded me of something that
happened to me. In 1989 I corresponded with an american jeweller
who attended Heiki Seppa’s workshop and who was kind enough to
send me copies of her notes. I eventually met her in 1990 when I
attended a Michael Good’s workshop at paradise on earth (ie
Haystack.) At the time we were both working with spiculum forms .
I had researched and made lots of differenent catches in an
effort to find one that would stop the pin from “rolling” when
worn. My friend and I swopped pins, when we turned them over to
inspect the catch ( as all jewellers do!) we discovered that they
were identical! It was a great moment.

Recently I started making picture frame brooches. My latest
Metalsmith arrived this week and in one of the adverts was a
frame broooch!!

The world is a small place.

Lets enjoy, create, expand and make the most of today.
