Finally some play ...


I made this pin today and did the backgrounds on some door hangers. The pins was lots of fun to make, I like the contrast between Making Memories hardware and the rusty washer, and between the bead head and the Queens head on the coin. I think the background on the door hangers is Misty Mawn meets Michael deMeng, I will have to see what you think when they are finished.
I will wear the pin to work tomorrow - I like to wear everything once even if it is a gift or for sale - that way I can check there are no pieces to catch on clothing and that each items dangles the right way when worn. Some of my students even get cranky if I don't have a new piece to wear on Mondays!

WOWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE.
To be honest I am not such a lover of jewellery but this one took my breath away julie. I too love the green and rust tones. Those trusty photo anchors I would never have thought of that one - so cool.
Gee a croos between Misty and Micahel - sounds sooo interesting!!!The mind boggles.
