Alison has recently opened a very nice little shop on artfireLovely work, all handmade in Scotland, UK
Are you thinking of going to Edinburgh? Apart from visiting teh castle and listening to bagpipes, you may meet Alison in one of her many exhibitions.
Here, she talks about her work:
"All Ali Bali Jewellery is designed and carefully handcrafted by me, Alison in my home in Edinburgh. I love working with a variety of materials, predominantly sterling silver, semi-precious Stones and freshwater pearls. I also love beautiful lampwork beads and have developed an addiction to David Christensen furnace glass beads.
Some of my work is made with Silver Art Clay which is a silver product made from reclaimed silver. It's made by a Japanese industrial recyling company. It is manufactured in clay form with tiny particles of fine silver suspended in the clay. Once the item has been moulded and carved to the desired form it is fired. The clay burns away and the fine silver particles bind together to form .999 silver. It's a fantastic material to work with, look out for it amongst my items for sale."
