The emergence of Dragonflies.

Well, spring has just about broken out in the UK. 
With the temperature reaching double figures in some area.

Beautiful Dragonflies will be emerging from their winter slumber. 
Bouncing through the skies and darting through the reeds. 
Beautiful colours floating over the pools of blue water 
and 
occasionally landing right next to you. 
Giving you a glimpse of their beautiful true colours.

Well that's my attempt at describing these amazing creatures.
Here are a few of my designs. I have tried to catch the colours in the dichroic glass with a simple Dragonfly enamel image
But I prefer Alfred, Lord Tennyson words which I have included further on.

The Dragonfly

 Today I saw the dragonfly
Come from the wells where he did lie.
An inner impulse rent the veil
Of his old husk: from head to tail
Came out clear plates of sapphire mail.
He dried his wings: like gauze they grew;
Thro’ crofts and pastures wet with dew
A living flash of light he flew.

Alfred, Lord Tennyson

New bags with new foiled labels.

So what happens on a cold winters evening in North Yorkshire? Well plenty but one thing that I have got around to doing is ordering my new bags. Plain white and really nice quality. I didn't want plain so my wonderful partner Sue at www.inspiredbyscript.co.uk made quite a few labels and foiled them beautifully with hot pink foil.

New sterling silver and dichroic design pendant.

A new and unique design sterling silver pendant. Hand crafted in our studio in Northallerton.
The dichroic glass for this pendant is made by firing multiple strips of glass in the kiln then shaping by hand and then firing again with a gas torch to smooth the edges.
The silver is then hand made, shaped and soldered to fit the dichroic glass.
