|Fabric free zone, jewellery making to the fore!|
Regular visitors will know that today (Wednesday) I take part in Whats on your workbench Wednesday, hosted by Julia at Stamping Ground . What regular visitors also know is that my desk is always a mess.
Well, surprise! On Monday I cleared away my sewing machine and all its accessories (can fabric really be called an accessory? I think necessity is better term.), and found my workbench underneath.

Then I noticed my empty bracelet bar and began scheming about making a new dalmation jasper bracelet with a matching necklace.
Funny isn't it, sometimes I make a piece of hammered jewellery and it is a complete one off, sometimes I want to repeat it and then lots of times I just want to change a little bit here, and a little bit there.
|Mango Pango, jewellery anvil, dalmation jasper|
And finally, the eagle eyed of you, will have spotted Mango-Pango bear sat on the jewellery anvil. I kept my promise and returned him to full fitness last night. He seemed quite pleased until I tried to take him back to the children's room at which point he began shouting expletives at me. Something about them not knowing how to treat a bear of his standing in the community.
