Waste not, want not ...

Remember those lovely forks? Well, they are progressing quietly to begin their second life as charm bangles. In the meantime, I couldn't resist using some of the left-over bits to make some pretty ear-dangles ...


First I hacked up the fork some more and filed and filed ... then I soldered on some sterling wire and added some amozonite and amethyst beads. Some more bashing and polishing followed and voila!  I think they are rather pretty - maybe next year for the SALA Festival I will do an exhibition titled "100 ear-rings" and just forget about making anything else because it seems to pretty much all I am producing just now ...
