I am quite surprised at how simple this piece appears after the hours of hammering, twisting, drilling and wrapping as I experimented. The old clock keys are a treat to work with, the volcano beads a perennial favourite and the central button a gift from Dad. I did feel bad about drilling the button but I could not get it to hang well using the shank.
Dawn blessed me with a Gizmo - a simple and amazing little tool for making the copper wire coils. I decided on the loosely woven silk ribbons for a tie closure because this one needs to be worn high and will need to be different lengths depending whether it is worn over turtle neck jumpers or against the skin.
Look at this lovely little Gecko, I have no idea why he ventured inside but his soft velvety skin, and delicate feet were a treat to behold late last night.
