A magical silver hare . . .

If you have been readers of my blog for a wee while
you may recall how much of a fan I am of the book "Masquerade"
and the sumptuous golden hare created by artist Kit William
(you can read all about the book & artist on the original post here
 Well, can you possibly imagine my delight & amazement
when I discovered this birthday present (below) awaiting me
from my lovely eldest lass Hannah and her partner Daniel.
My very own stunning silver version of that magical hare,
so beautiful, such attention to detail, even the tiny bells ring!
 Oh, they know me so well, my precious family!
 Dear Dan had spent many long hours here & there
secretly hand crafting every piece of this treasure.
I really am quite simply lost for words!
Dan is hoping to do more silver smithing Im glad to say!

  17. Ruthie,the hare is beautiful,what a wonderful surprise.I love Kit's work,he's so untouched by the art world!

    I hope you do get around to illustrating the Tale of Thomas,it really merits a book of it's own.I'm amazed how this story still inspires 800 years on.

    Wishing you a happy year!

  19. A wonderfully sculpted piece of silver Ruthie.
    I've always been of the opinion that Celtic jewelry lends itself better to silver than gold.
