I've been making some earrings and necklaces using sea glass and silver. I actually got the idea from a dream..I dreamt that I was selling necklaces with silver pendants with Italian words stamped onto them, and when I woke I realised that it might actually be a good idea. Here are my first few attempts. What do you think? I'd really like some feedback!
This year we have a real Christmas tree in the piazza, it has been planted with its roots so that after Christmas it can be replanted somewhere and not wasted. I think it is much prettier than the fake tree we've had the last few years.
