Why crafty friends are the best friends

A few weeks ago I was closing one of the windows in my bedroom when my favourite silver ring that I was wearing at the time got caught on the window latch. This pulled on the ring quite hard and bent it right out of shape. I was really upset as it was a 30th birthday present from my best friend and I wear it every day. Now it just so happens that another friend, Steph, has fairly recently trained as a silversmith, so I asked if she would be able to reshape my ring. Fortunately for me, she said yes.

Just a week later, here’s my lovely ring. As good as new again!

Silver Ring

As a thank you, I baked Steph some of my favourite white chocolate, cranberry and cinnamon cookies.


This is not the first time that Steph has saved me from a pickle, she also re-hemmed one of my favourite dresses when the hem started to drop after only a couple of months. What a superstar! You can follow her crafting pursuits (which are many and varied!) on her Netty Not blog and Facebook Page.

    I’m so glad it could be fixed! And I agree, how fabulous to have a silversmith on hand!

      Me too! I’m still hugely relieved that I didn’t snap it, that would have been terrible!

    After a fairly rubbish day at work reading your post has cheered me right up – eating your lovely cookies as helped considerably!

    I do think sharing skills & being able to help out a friend in a pickle is a lovely thing to able to do! 🙂
