Some of you may recall that a few weeks back Emma introduced me to the magical world of silver art clay as part of a skills swap. It took me a while to sort out a heat source (no gas in our village, and our use of a blowtorch last year ended in near disaster) but I finally cranked up our old camping stove, bought enough gas cylinders to last a lifetime and rapidly used up a block of clay making flowers and hearts and all sorts until I felt confident enough to make tiny pendants for my girls. Just before Easter I added some crystal flowers and butterflies and here they are.
One for a yellow loving girl:
And one for a fan of pink:
There was also one for me but the girls insisted I make one for their cousin so I recycled my chain for her and mine is now waiting till I order some more for myself. How many of these can I wear at once, I wonder?
I am not going to admit to how many silver headpins I wasted along the way. Gulp.
