We are probably not technically snowed in just yet, but I don't have any plans to leave the house the entire weekend. I did my panic food shopping last night, thank goodness.

Anyway, I have been interested in recycling my scraps of silver in the past few weeks, so my newest designs use silver granules for decoration in different ways.

Yesterday I made a pair of earrings that was very mosaic like in its use of dots - I suppose my love of mosaics will always find a way to come out...

Some are hammered and some left round, all soldered without a backing, so there are gaps between the joins. I left all the tool marks intact - it is recycled silver and I like the organic look.

Here are some other earrings using this technique, this time with sea glass:

The pendant I'm working on is similar and also uses sea glass, but this time I'll oxidise it to see how that looks...
