I have a website! It is just a start and needs lots of work. Any suggestions about making it better? Also *SPOILER ALERT* all my degree show work is on there so don’t look at the photos if you are coming!
I’m getting my photograph taken tomorrow while wearing some of my jewellery for degree show. Eek. Hope I undergo metamorphosis tonight like my wee beetle pals and become something beautiful… hmm.
Just got in from the studio. So after today one of my apparently simple wire brooches now consists of 9 stone settings. I have not started them yet… Wish me luck.
Oh I also decided I need to make 40 small brooches. Which means 120 solder joins to make all the catches. I only have 3 weeks left. And other pieces to make. I am mental.

I know I said I wasn’t going to post anymore finished pieces until after my degree show but I’m pretty pretty proud of this stone setting and want to show it off! :)
Just wanted to say hello and a big thank you to you all!! It really means a lot that so many people are interested in what I do. Things may get a little quiet over the next month as I don’t want to give too much away before degree show but after I will have LOADS of new work to show you all!
I would also be very grateful if you liked my facebook page and told all your friends to as well ;) https://www.facebook.com/AilsaWhittetRitchieJewellery
Here is a cute sloth to say thanks.
