Fame at last............again



CLICK ON LETTER ABOVE TO ENLARGE
In may 2008 Dickinson's Real Deal came to Todmorden to do a filming session, so naturally i thought why not take some bits along? So i took a selection of vintage and antique jewellery, and some 'not-quite-scrap-more-chavvy-crap' gold jewellery, that i had collected at car-boots etc. for very little money, none of the old stuff was of any real value or interest, but the they said that they had a dealer who bought scrap gold, and so i went over to the table, and did the deal! Unfortunately the only piece of 'my' jewellery that we had with us at the time was a polymer clay fish necklace that my mum was wearing, so that was filmed to, and i said a bit about myself, what i make, and, to encourage me the dealer gave me that day's market value and i made about £60 profit! - so i got a really good deal!
The program is on ITV 2pm on the 23rd of this month, if anyone happens to be around! let me know if you spot me!
Toby.

Hi Toby,

I'll be at work but might be able to watch a repeat on digital tv.

Looks like you've been making loads of great stuff, I've sent your mum an email, sorry it's been so long!

Keep up the brilliant work,
