This is my 1st real MM jewellery piece totally inspired by the wonderful
I finally got my hands on a Dremel and went to town in the last few days with driling, grinding, cutting, polishing etc etc... This little tool is incredibly addictive, and so wonderfully easy to use, I am in love with my new toy can you tell.
Here I played with metal etching and patinas which I did a few months, just waiting for the chance to drill a few holes in it. Chopped a tiny birdcage in half, used a penny tin type photo, attempted to make a birds nest. Now all I have to do is learn to make some links for a chain and then it will be completed.
The half birdcage idea came from Judy of Red Velevet, from her "Fair Maid of Perth" book she has on her blog. Absoutley stunning book, and she is teaching it in Melbourne in November and I cant wait. I am so behind in stocking up on supplies for it though, so later this week, looks like I will be hitting the internet big time, and hoping the goods arrive before the class.
