“Oh Silver darling! You look stunningly sterling. Where are you going?"                                                        "My cat walks with silver dust clinging to her paw pads.  During inclement weather she leaps onto the work place bench top and communicates to me her demands.  I surrender my chair, she nestles in and for the rest of the day she sleeps in warmth and comfort. I weakly retrieve another chair from around the dining room table, sigh and continue working on the piece of jewellery.  There's a dominance in the silver jeweller's studio and its not me.  "It's all that you want it to be"
