What I am working on at the moment - this is my current obsession - mirror image - so expect more to come.... I have misxed all the colours and in the process of creating the skinner blends - more soon - I hope!
From a Bead and Button I think - but can't remember this one right at the moment.... seems to have grown leggs and gone away - anyhow - this one almost sent me blind - I had to end up using the cheap magnifying glasses from the chemist as it is made mostly of size 15/0 seed beads. Twas a bit of a challenge - but I love it!! very daintly - not usually a word I associate with myself.... or my work!! LOL anyhow - took quite a while as if I put it down mid component, I often had to unpick to know exactly which row I was up to!
I have been playing around with pinata inks on silver leaf for a while now and finally got around to finishing some stuff off :) enjoy
Polymer clay, pinata inks and silver leaf
Just went Shopping at Maters - a large hardware chain which is reasonably new to queensland - anyhow - found some great stuff. Went looking for wire - black to be exact - well not a lot of sizes to choose from but did find some and quite a few other things as well :) of special note is the braided picture wire - which is a bit like some vicking knit wire - and very cool - oh and I love that brass chain.....
