My school life

I have completed my jewelry craftsmanship course which
was rewarding. I am so proud of myself. I am now able
to know more about the fundamental knowledge of being
a jeweler. (A real one, not those assembly findings from
Shamshuipo bead stores) I do wish I can make it further
back to Hong Kong.

I did not take a lot of photos in the studio as I was too
concentrate to work and learn. Also, it was quite dusty
and full of chemicals. I did not want to put my camera
in danger.

Below is my jewelry bench during lesson.

My first piece of copper sawing, a seagull, which I can see
every day on the way to school. The seagull here in
Edinburgh do not afraid of people. I am afraid of them...

to showcase all classmates' hard work for a week. Such that we
can see other classes' works. A brilliant way to inspire each other
also a marketing skills to make you enroll more courses.
Haahha as per the head of summer course said.

Victoria charm has returned. Some may think it is granny-like, but I do like it. I caught a bad flu here in Edinburgh which developed to a serious one. My hubby has done well to take care of me. He cooks 3 hot meals every day! (Well done)

An old fashion cup of tea does smooth me. 3 weeks more and I shall return to my home.

Hope everyone is doing good.
