However, yesterday I spent the entire morning on the foreshore, having been there for about 20 minutes the previous day. I met some lovely 'ladies who mudlark', and it was a great fun, and also quite productive.
Here are some of my finds: I'll start with the non pottery shard things which I don't normally pick up, but was inspired to by my companions - this is an aglet. It's very tiny - this is a macro shot. Aglets are made of metal and would go on the end of laces. I didn't know they existed until Julia showed me.
Then I found this button - again very much enlarged, it is just button size but the macro shows the lovely details:
Then some very colourful glass - the round piece in the centre is a glass button, but the back has broken off. The texture is almost that of sea glass.
And now to the pottery pieces:
|Pieces of people, and pieces of birds|
|Some lovely black and white patterns|
|blue and white patterns|
|some very colourful floral pieces|
|Lovely greens - my favourite is the very delicate piece of leaf - it's tiny though|
|Stars! I love stars! These will be used on bracelets|
|and lastly - some textured pieces|
I have enough pieces for a while now, but I have caught the bug again so I will be going back soon!
