Weekend accomplishments thus far

Well, have actually made a few pieces of jewellery today.... Having a four day break is wonderful.... hopefully I can do a few more things over the next couple of days too!

I recently picked up some silver plated vintage cutlery and managed to put together the following. A fair bit of wire wrapping, drilling, polishing etc.... gotta love my dremel! lol

The fork was a bit of a trial.... I managed to break off one of the prongs... so made it into a loop! Then when I was trying to polish it, went a bit crazy with the dremel, therefore I had to create a pattern on it to cover up the mistakes!

Backyard visitors

Whilst taking a break from trying to tidy up my studio on Sunday, I managed to snap a couple of the regular visitors to my backyard.

This Kookaburra stayed for quite a while while the female King Parrot feasted on the feed and then flew off to join her mate.

Various Pics

The following pics were taken from Cambewarra Mountain on the way home from work. It is always a bit hazey.... but at least it gives you an idea on the area in which I live.

I've used a telescopic lens with this one.

  • On the left is Coolangatta Mountain.

  • Shoalhaven River

  • Far right leads down to Jervis Bay
