If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you may remember I did an interview with the amazing mud-larker, jewellery maker and artist extraordinaire Alexandra Abraham several months ago (you can read it here).

Alexandra has made a wonderful video about her work and her mud-larking along the Thames river in London in which she finds all sorts of incredible historical pieces of glass, Elizabethan tiles, Roman coins, clay pipes … You name it, there’s a raft of history submerged amongst the silt and stones of the river just waiting for fossickers like Alexandra to find them and upcycle them into beautiful jewellery and art work.

I highly recommend you watch her little film as it’s beautifully produced (click on an image below). I’m sure it will make you wish, as it does me, that you could join her by the side of the Thames.
