Still on the theme of chocolate...

Hello friends
Easter eggs arrived in the shops just after Christmas didn't they!?
I know it gets earlier and earlier every year.  
Personally I do not have a problem with this as I'm severely addicted 
to Cadbury's Buttons eggs!
It is also when I start thinking about repackaging and customising easter eggs - 
here is one from last year using Butterfly Corner and Gold Labels Four.
A side view to see the golden egg! 
The packaging can be made from one piece of 12 x 12 cardstock or 
by joining A4 card. 
To keep the egg securely in place I use Dodz - little miracles in a box!

Now some silver... Sara who is coming to the studio/shop next month to teach
a Silver Clay Workshop sent through some images of jewellery that another class
of beginners recently made.  Each piece very different and beautiful.
If you are tempted to book, the details are here.
I'm loving that bird necklace!!

Today back in London, feeling totally out of sync but needs must!
Take care friends - stop by all know why! :)

I love your egg cover! I have 6 to give away, and I am definitely going to have a go and make them all individual.

I hope work isn't too tedious and Elliott's appointment goes well.

So much more beautiful than the unimaginative manufacturers' packaging! Makes a chocolate gift look totally Eggs-travagant -
(sorry, someone had to)and even more inviting (if that's even possible).
