Oh these seem to have taken such a long time to finish. I am at the pointy end (actually, the pointy end was a week or two ago) of a fat book and charm swap with the artistic journey group girls (i’m hoping they’ll forgive me for being late???)
So, theme was “gypsy journey”
These are pretty self explanatory – squished bottle tops, holes drilled with my rotary tool, wrapped copper wire and beads. I find it so much easier to wrap wire with my fingers rather than pliers – anyone else? and now my fingers are quite tender!!
the second lot of charms are little books!
the photos below didn’t work out quite as well as planned…. i thought it might be fun to photograph them sandwiched between real books on my revolving bookshelf.
i was aiming for a “journal” kind of thing as I would want to be documenting my gypsy journey, if I was a gypsy and/or had a journey to be going on….
handmade felt, embroidery thread, Canson Mi Teintes paper, button and silver wire and jump rings.
fat book pages to follow….
