I'm loving doing my jewelry at the moment. This piece again with Mica and my beautiful rusted bird a friend sent me, well its rusted now LOL.
Ro asked me if the mica splits on the edges no I havent had that trouble but the spotted mica was thick and I sanded the edges with a soft file. You could try a fine bit of PVA glue on the edges to stop it fraying.
The tin photo is another of my treasures that one day I said I would use it and yes the day has come.
Yes the bird's nest is the craze with me at the moment!!!(thank you Deryn for your help your an inspiration)
Hope you enjoy it,
