Hi - yes I know it's been a long time.
The first thing I need to mention that I gave changed my trading name from Lynette Jewel to Lynette Vickery Jewellery. You can still find me on Lynette Jewel for a while so you can use either.
I had a bumper year in 2015. I taught myself sand casting last January and it really took off. The main favourites were shells: whelks, mussel shells, clams and starfish. Then there were the acorns, poppy seed heads and poppy seed head caps. In fact they all did very well.
This year I am going to continue with the sand casting (because I love it) but incorporating more gemstones and sea glass.
I am also doing a lot of fused silver. I gather together different pieces of silver and place them artistically! I then use my small torch to heat the pieces to get the effect I want without melting too much which results in a hole! You never know what the result will be but if I don't like them, I just start again. I think I must have been a pyromaniac in a previous
I am also re-visiting etching. When I first starting etching I found the results difficult to sell but just before Christmas it all turned around and the items were flying off the shelf. Maybe it takes a while for people to catch up with me ha ha.
Anyway, please take a look on my website www.lynettevickeryjewellery.com, in the meantime I am posting a few pictures for you.
