Spotlight On: Dianne Sandland

I've really enjoyed reading about Dianne while doing the research for this blog - and looking at some of her gorgeous silver work.  Since retiring four years ago Di has fallen in love with silver and also enjoys lampworking too.  Me?  I've fallen in love with this etched silver clasp:

I would so love this for something just for me!  Isn't it beautiful? 

These beads are already sold but I loved Di's description of them so much that I thought I'd share it, and them, with you:

'A set of five lentil-shaped sterling silver beads that have been etched with the words of a love letter. Because all love letters are secret, it has been etched in mirror writing so protect the lovers...'  Awwwwww.

Finally, how about this fabulous amber pendant?  I've no idea how you would go about making something like this but I do love it!

If you would like to see more of Dianne's work why not pop over to her Etsy shop or to read more about her life, check out her Blog.
