The Potala in a whale in a bottle

This is one of my favourite pieces of 2010. The Potala is the former residence of  His Holiness the Dalai Lama in Tibet. This piece is 124 x 44 mm. It is made from fine silver, sterling silver, 18ct yellow gold and agate beads. The whale has a blue sapphire eye. Make of it what you will.

Ship in a Whale

fine silver, sterling silver, black diamond, inlaid Iranian beads. (112mm across)

While I may have been neglecting the www I wasn't neglecting my jewellery making. In 2010 I moved studios and this was the first piece I made in my brand new studio. Combining things that I love, Ships, whales, constellations, silver, diamonds, exotic beads...  Photo by e.getal.

Looks like I've been lost in the woods but I've made it to the station and I'm back on the blog train. Full steam ahead!
