The History Hop Reveal

Today I am joining Leah Curtis of Beady Eyed Bunny for her History Hop. I choose to do the Roman era, as I love all things Roman from the beautiful shapes of their glass vases to the stunning seal rings.
I was lucky enough to visit the Roman Baths in Bath a few years ago and this week I also came across this in the Albert and Victoria Museum in London, I think it is Roman tho I did not get much time for standing and reading as we had all the kiddys (half term)....


Now as much as I would love to be able to make a beautiful silver cuff with this image going around it my skills do not quiet stretch that far yet, So I used this for inspiration instead....


Lots of lovely Roman glass, I love the iridescence of Roman glass. Now my design is not finished but I thought I would show it any way....


I quiet literally used roman glass as my inspiration as that is what my focal is, the colours are so beautiful but so hard to photograph, I also used a selection of Roman beads including these lovely lapis lazuli swirls....


Now it is no where near finished but I am hoping it will be by the end of the week, and who knows it may well look completely different, Thank you Leah for the inspiration.

Have a great day
