  1. The Farne Islands, a sanctuary for seabirds and seals, celebrate 90 years as a British jewel of conservation

    Puffins always draw the summer crowds to the islands off Northumberland, which are the favourite UK wildlife site of Sir David Attenborough.

    A couple of miles out to sea, off the Northumberland coast, some uncut jewels in the firmament of England’s natural heritage shimmer. The Farne Islands, ancient and sanctified by the hands of St Cuthbert, can only be reached on one of a fleet of boats that ferry hundreds of visitors each day in high summer. Drive through country roads until pasture gives way to sand and you are in Seahouses, the little coastal village where time, when it reached 1969, liked what it saw and decided to tarry.  Read more in The Guardian

  2. Yey, it's sunny this morning here in Northumberland, can only hope it lasts! Post Office run, then beach walk (looking for sea glass) then into the studio to make some more of these gorgeous little stacking rings. They're made with 2mm sterling silver wire, so not as thin as my super skinny 1mm stacking rings.

    Wear them singly or stacked, buy one then add to them. What do you think, alone or stacked?
