new thang ...

I finally settled at my bench today and made something! Yay for me. This piece is actually being donated as a prize that will be handed out at next weeks screening of a doco called "Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea.". Head on over to Emmica's blog and read about what it is and where it is being shown. In the meantime, I thought I would share the necklace with by way of patting myself on the back!



I have revisited a style here - although this looks quite different to the last one I made like this. That is a good thing.


Lovely scrap of vintage tin - and I mean scrap. It was just a skerrick and I had to cut it out very carefully. Lush pattern isn't it?


The rest is reclaimed pewter - both cast (wee birdy) and cut out from a mug. Those gorgeous beads are dyed riverstones and matched perfectly which was pretty lucky really 'cos as usual, I just started and hope my stash would provide. And it did! All done and in the post now - I hope the lucky winner enjoys wearing it.

If I was going to the doco, I would be the one leaving wearing that no matter what the cost. That is beautiful. I can't imagine the labor of love that went into creating such a piece. I's absolutely lovely.
