So, I finally decided to pony up the £7.82 and join the ball pit. Thought I may as well start by making it all about me.
I'm currently (though not for long) the co-owner of a small metalwork business called the Leaky Crucible (http://leakycrucible.com
) where I made and sold jewellery stuff.
I've had a bit of a disagreement with my business partner about various things, so I'm currently in the process of looking for a new workshop (and possibly having to come up with a new brand etc) but in the meantime here's a few things I've made I'm particularly happy with. They're all handmade and I'm pretty proud of my work (although I know I have a lot to learn).
A Manchester Worker Bee - by far my best selling piece, cut from sterling silver
A keyring I made as a gift for JW Friedman of IDEOTVpod fame - layers of copper riveted to a stainless steel core with brass rivets
A Welsh Dragon necklace - hand engraved sterling silver plated with 24 carat gold
An astrology-themed wall clock - made this as a gift for my mum who is (believe it or not) a professional fortune teller
Anyway, would love to get any feedback on what folks think, and if anyone wants something made I'll be happy to offer a ballpit discount once I get my business settled.
