Dad surprised me on the weekend. I guess I’ve probably been dropping a few hints since Christmas last year, but i certainly didn’t intend for him to rush out and buy me this….
…. well, not till Christmas anyway!!!! Thank you very muchly dad. its ace and i’ve used it already. there are three new holes in my work table – must get a block of wood!
even rotary tool bits can look interesting!
My first piece of jewellery! I’m proud of it, will wear it in public even! I have been trying to take a decent photo of it all morning but the light is all wrong. I need my photographer to come home from work to take some decent shots for me….
Anyway, the piece is called “japonica blooming”. it is made up of sterling silver chain and wirework (wrapped in the fashion of Nina – who unknowingly introduced me to the altered art world), freshwater pearls lightly blushed with pink, an original photo mounted on polymer clay pendant with a pink adventurine and sterling drop.
this very bad, but close up shot shows that I did in fact use my new toy to drill through the pendant where I have attached the jump rings!!!
Now I just need a good, inexpensive (???) supplier of sterling silver and someone who can cast some charms for me…..
