Back in the workroom - at last!

Today seemed to be an ear-ring kinda day ...

In celebration of Spring - little birds that I made and some pretty 'flowers' Thr bottom beads are actually a soft violet colour but for some reason they look like moonstone here.

I chopped up a small Selangor pewter bowl today and used some of it to make these. I textured the discs with my new you-beaut texturing hammer then patinaed them for a yummy charcoal colour. The copper was from the tray I found at the op shop and I riveted it on with a brass rivet.

These were also made from the pweter bowl and I textured this one too. These are very simple but I think they are rather stylish.

The delicacy of the pattern looks a bit like fabric to me. It felt good to be back in the workroom for sure!

Love these Sue, such a great selection. I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who cuts up metal trays.
