A Small Pile of Weather

Shiny weather! Well, alright, it's not at all shiny just yet, this is what it comes back from the caster looking like.

Soon, it shall be turned into shiny silver cloud necklaces and earrings and sunshine necklaces too.  As a child, I loved drawing the BBC weather symbols, and this jewellery will be inspired by them. Well, also by our peculiarly British obsession with the weather - what on earth would we all talk about if we didn't have the weather!?

I get all excited when I collect castings - the two lovely guys who do my casting think I'm a teeny little bit crazy. But I was especially excited to see how the sunshine turned out, as it was an absolute bugger to sprue and mould.

I shall now be chained to my workbench until they're finished.
