New jewellery ideas for 2017

Posted on January 16, 2017 by Catherine Ash-Vie

Coming soon! I have just sent off a 3 blade propeller, a very small long shackle and the 'Katie' shell to be professionally moulded and cast.

My first foray into gold - for the tiny shackle.  Very excited to be able to offer my first gold piece of jewellery! I will probably launch it at the Dinghy Show 2017.

New Reef Knot silver ring

Finally got around to making a Reef Knot ring to match my range of reef knot jewellery - bangle, charm bracelet and necklace.

It's easy and comfortable to wear, and I think I will be making many more of these.  This first one is a gift for my nephew Jamie - a very cool dude indeed! He thinks it will make a good signet type ring for his little finger.  I hope he likes it!

New shell pendant cast in silver

My niece Katie searched out a lovely shell for me to make into a necklace for her. It has turned out beautifully and makes a perfect pendant!

Glue a jump ring?

Posted on January 10, 2017 by Catherine Ash-Vie

No - is the short answer.

I have a problem when I make my silver yachts; by the time I want to solder on the jump ring, the hull and rig assembly keeps trying to fall apart when I heat it.

So I experimented with trying to glue the jump ring on; and I've concluded that it just isn't possible. 

Back to the soldering board!
