....the talent of others. Chum, E and I, popped into a small local art gallery on Tuesday to look at some jewellery made by a lady she knows and who is currently teaching her.

All these artists are members of the Surrey Guild of Craftsmen. More of their work can be seen here http://www.surreyguild.com/
