In a nutshell

(viewed 5160 times)

When I first started making silver things I got a real buzz off making
things with a precious metal - anything you make has this instant
value because it's a silver thing. I think that I enjoy making the
packaging just as much as the objects though - it's the opposite trick
- making something precious out of something of little value. The two
things work together nicely and seem to be an underpinning theme in my
work.

I do make earrings too.. there's three or so pairs on etsy http://www.etsy.com/shop/bethmadethis and there's a silver and gold pair on here if you click the 'bethmadethissilver' tag. Were you thinking about type earrings? I supposed I could do them too!

Caine says:

Beth, yes, please send away. :) I think I'd like two sets. I know my sizes in American, I just can't remember what they are in British. One set, one size 5, two size 6, but those are American sizes.

as they say -' there is nothing new under the sun' - and I thought I had hit on something 'original' - well, it just shows - the best ideas are the best - thank you, your execution is lovely and a fab way to present your silver/gold.
