New Arctic Hare brooch

After a brief pause for a damp week of camping in Dorset (hmmnnn, Summer arrived just as we returned home), work has been continuing, all rather erratically now the kids are off. Just wanted to show you something I have been working on as I think it's rather lovely. It is actually a commission, but I think I might just make one of these for myself.

It is not finished yet. The bezel needs a polished finish, and then the moonstone setting. The hare needs to have its proper brushed finish. Then this little beauty can whizz off to it's new owner, who used to own a quirky little jewellery shop here in Teddington, and who has just started to learn to make silver jewellery herself.

Couldn't resist adding a few holiday snaps to this post... these buildings are all nestled at the bottom of Corfe Castle. Just gorgeous.

This surely must be one of the tiniest cottages ever. Jasper is only six, and he's nearly as big as the door!
