To get all that creativeness flowing before the convention on 31 May, my dearly beloved and I are off to Devon to try our hand at jewellery making – with a difference.

We are going to spend a day using metal clay – a combination of precious metal powder and a binder. Once formed, the piece is fired in a kiln, or heated with a blow torch, to fuse the particles and burn off the binder. Apparently it been around since the early 90s, and was developed in Japan.

I’ll get some pictures to show you how we get on.
