At Saturday's Mini Church of Craft Naomi restrung an old bookmark that I'd been given by a neighbour as a child. She then drew me a diagram of how she'd reassembled this tricky piece.
Now I'd used this teeny wooden dolly's component parts to make Siligum moulds and then formed metal clay beads. All I thought I needed to do was follow Naomi's instructions and hey presto, on Sunday morning, whilst still in my jim jams and yet to finish my first cuppa of the day I would finish my pure silver copy of a favourite old possession.
Here's where I'm at now. So near and yet so far. I read about something called an awl that might just do the trick but first it's a question of resting the brain to it can easily slip into a creative gear.
