After the Show is over

It's been a long week. Birthdays, funeral, too much going on in life. And I'd booked an on-line  show with my three friends Helen Backhouse, Lucy Haslam and Jeni Houser Alasad. We had big ideas, a theme going - so the show must go on. Not a long one from me then, this week - I'm just going to share a few of my favourite pairs from the show.

Our theme was Mother Earth, morphing on the second day into Middle Earth and snippets from Tolkien's Lord of the Rings trilogy. Helen and I both live very near Stonyhurst, where Tolkien was a schoolmaster during WW2 and wrote a great deal of his trilogy; the landscape around there is believed to have been his inspiration for Middle Earth. Close to home then.

The first pair represent the Leaves of Lorien, given by the Elven queen Galadriel to the Company of Adventurers to safeguard them on their journey to the Lonely Mountain. The leaves are of course by Helen  and I added sterling connectors and silver earwires by Lucy.

Next we have the Dark Tower of Mordor - ceramics by Mari Carmen Rodriguez Martinez with mooakite chunks, black lampwork and Lucy's copper earwires.

And last - from the Mother Earth - these fabulous faces from Jeni with Laura Souder raku discs, lampwork by Juliette Mullett and brass chain. Queen of the Night - the moon, tied in orbit to the Earth.  Speaking of which, I'm off to bed after two very late nights. If you caught our show, I hope you enjoyed it, I know we did.

                    Have a lovely Easter time, however you celebrate. See you in two weeks!
