Ashlynn NOW you're talking. That's something I'd wear and I love it. So would my Potter fan daughter of 25!

Great brooch!

I have to confess, though, I'd love to see it oxidised to really bring out the shaping, especially on the brush.

What a fantastic use of scrap Smile

Thanks for your lovley comments, was umming and ahhing about oxidising it.

If I did LOS it and didn't like it would re pickling it remove all traces of the LOS in the nooks and crannies?

Midnight Blue Crucifix Cuff (to "stave off", them there grizzly ghouls)

Sorry that this pic is soooo in your face.
But, as you may have realized, I haven't been around for a few days. Reason = was taken into hospital pale
Anyway, I'm back, feeling rather sorry for myself and a tad under the weather and I haven't the energy to do any more faffing around.

That's John Cleese's portrait in the back ground taken by the American Portrait Photographer Annie Leibovitz.

Happy Halloween every one. I'm back in hospital on the 7th Nov, not sure when I'll be back on the forum. I'll peek in before I go in, so to speak. sunny
ps. As I haven't got a hand mannequin I had to use my ankle mannequin, but it is a Wrist Cuff. Sleep

A bit of fun here. I've been learning how to fuse glass lately and came up with this witchy cabouchon set into a sterling silver bezel.




Depending on the way that the light hits it, either the witch inclusion or the background dichroic glass is more prominent. I like to think that she's flying through a starry night sky.

They're both great. I love the blue beaded cuff it's very pretty. The pendant is fab. I love that you get two looks from the one piece.
Batty Hon, I hope you're ok. Good luck with goiing back into hospital. Thinking of you. xxx

Two very different, but both very lovely entries.

Batty, I love the colours and the way the drops work. I like to see a bit of movement in seed bead designs. I bet it is lovely to wear.

Mead Moon, I have only seen abstract patterns in dichroic glass, but your little witch works really well and is clever the way she changes in different lights. Spooky!

That is so sweet of you to ask, yes I am absolutly fine, honest, just a lousy sleeper. I know as you get older you are meant to sleep more but true to form I have gone the other way.

larks and owls

Post  nangoose on Sun Oct 30, 2011 7:50 pm

Lynne is one of lifes larks. I am the opposite. Although my dog has me up at 6 am most mornings and 7 am is a lie in to me, I am a brain dead zombie until 10. 30 am and my second mug of coffee. I am definitely an owl. If I do not go to bed early I am wide awake and full of energy and ready to party by midnight.

All great entry's again, another tough call for the judges.

Yes Pru, the seed bead bracelets are lovely to wear, slinky / silk like around ones wrist.

Not much energy today.

Good luck every one.

the cauldrons are brilliant Lakelady and I love that the body of the cauldrons themselves look like cast iron.
Lovely detail in the bubbling contents too.
