These little beasties came into being over the course of the week-end. They are brooches (on the largish side!) and are made from driftwood, EPNS, pewter, brass and ink. They are super special to me because I collected the driftwood whilst I was on a lovely week-end away with my dear friends. We went for a brisk afternoon walk along the beach and, with eyes cast down, we found lots of treasure - all of which was donated to yours truly. Even a whole swag of cuttlefish that will be great to cast into - well so I have heard I haven't actually tried that yet ...

I must say that working with wood was a new experience for me but one I enjoyed immensely. Of course driftwood is rather soft and very light so I think it was a good choice for a first attempt at carving. These beasties will be joining in the fun during SALA at my exhibition.
