I'm Back!!

Scarlett Willow DesignsComment

After twelve and a half hours in the air, three different planes, a speedboat and countless times through security, we finally made it home!

Myself and my family had an amazing time in the Maldives where I enjoyed a spa treatment every day (those poor masseuses tried desperately to rid me of the knots in my shoulders but alas, they refused to budge!), dived in crystal clear waters with fish and reef sharks that I'd only ever seen at the Sealife Centre and didn't have to cook for two weeks!!

But even though we were in paradise, I always get that pull to return home.  I can't wait to get back in the workshop, I feel refreshed and raring to go! My nails actually look good but, as any other jeweller will tell you, that is not going to last!  I will very soon be back to having ridges filed into them from holding tiny pieces and cuts from those pesky burrs!  

I LOVE IT!!

On The Bench!!

On The Bench!Scarlett Willow DesignsComment

On the bench this week is something a little different for me.  

It's a gift for a family member who has a very special birthday this month and thought I would create a keepsake that is crafted from sterling silver but isn't a piece of jewellery.  

I've decided to make a small silver marquise-shaped trinket box!  Quite different to anything I've ever made before and involves a few new skills for me.  It is definitely a challenge but I'm really enjoying it...just hope the lid fits!

Pictures to follow once the box has been gifted :-)
