Temporarily Strung

On Sunday I went to the London Bead Show.  It was great to meet up with folks and get chatting to new people. 


It was a real shame as there weren't too many lampworkers around.  Less than a week before it I received a phone call from the organisers inviting me to show as they had had two lampworkers pull out.  Needless to say with so little notice it was impossible for me to get enough stock together to be able to do it.  Chatting to the organisers on the day the others they had contacted said the same.

I met these guys http://www.designercabochons.co.uk/  and have to say I'm in love with these cabs.  It takes me back to my roots in my jewellery journey where I was looking for something unique to set into silver.  I think if I had found these guys earlier I may have never become a lampworker at one level as the cabs are exactly what I was looking for


This one is temporarily wire wrapped with sterling silver wire so I get to wear it before it gets set in silver.  I love, love, love their stuff
