wildwood blue amber choker

Thought I'd share this with you.
Those of you who come to my stall regularly will have seen this piece on my stand. The most expensive item I have at £350! Recently though I've been getting some really blue stones out of my amber so I've decided to "upgrade" this piece with a really stunningly blue stone. It was nice, the stone that preceded it, but it didn't really do the piece justice.
I think you'll agree that this stone looks at home here!
One of my first hallmarked pieces, this.
Birmingham Assay office have been great at helping me out with the intricacies of the assay process!
I'll have some new (slightly cheaper!) blue amber pieces online by the weekend, I hope.

World's most useless cat?

Had to take a photo when I saw this from the kitchen window.
Both parties completely oblivious of eachother! Harvey's job is to keep the pigeons off the newly seeded areas of lawn and stop them pooing everywhere. Have to cut down on his food, I think to get him interested...
