always... our memories.

My dziadziu passed away on Monday.

He was a wonderful grandfather - when I was very small he would carry me around for ages, until I fell asleep. As a small child, he let me comb his hair (he always had a comb in his pocket). Later I was always allowed to dip my biscuit in his coffee. He would find us the very first fruit (sometimes a little too early even).

& I shall miss him.

Babcia & Dziadziu, probably in the early 50's

Silver bead necklace

A while ago (well, way back in June) I posted about a batch of sliver (pmc) I had recently finished. One of the pieces was this cylindrical bead, which I had a plan for. Before I went to Melbourne, I finally managed to make it happen...

I wanted a long necklace, but didn't want to restrict myself, so I designed my chain with two (handmade) clasps, so that I can remove a section of chain, allowing me to wear it as a short necklace as well.

I used lost of different colours of bead, so it goes with almost anything...

...& altogether, I'm very pleased with the result :)
