Pins Pins and Pins!


Hi Everyone,
I have just finished these fun pins I did for a friend in the states the lovely Amber Dawn was having a pin swap.
Mine are made from old leather wonderful Artchix pictures and my favorite Mica !! How good is Mica? I noticed that Ro is in the swap as well so cant wait to get her pin.
I just want to thank everyone for the kind words about my art work I really appreciate it .
Well My back is on the mend slowly which great, it will never be any good due to a car accident years ago.
Im is getting so excited to go to the states in over a week’s time. The Aussie dollar is so great so I’m buying stuff already and getting it sent to my American sis Linda place old cameras, bead, ebay buys.
Have a great Long weekend for those in OZ.
Jen

Very cool pins Jen, I love the copper coloured holed metal that you have used on the top of them.
So pleased to hear that your back is feeling a little better, that is good news.
You lucky girl, jet setting off to the U.S. How long are you away for?

Fabulous pins Jen, I hope I get one of yours, your necklace you gave me is fabulous. Thanks so much. Have a great time in the US, I'll try to ring you before you go.

My husband and I both chose the little boy smiling.
He is our favorite pin in the bunch!

They look far better in person!
I am going to take some really good pictures and post them to my blog before July.
Gillian is also making us a page on Art-E-Zine.
DO let me know if you would like, or need any components! You can trade me for something you whip up during one of your late night art parties with Linda for a trade!
I was so blown away by the stuff you guys made during your last visit! OK- I admit, I wish I could join you!
Talk with you soon!

Just gorgeous Jen...these are fabulous......

Gorgeous! I love the names above them- it makes me think of some odd boarding school somewhere in the past, where the prefects and best students all have names that will eventually become names of suburbs.

I think I like Richmond best- he has the devil behind those eyes!

These pins are uniquely gorgeous! You are one clever lady. So glad you got to Nina's class because she is a gem. Your bracelet is "charming!" You should be proud of all your work. Sending my good wishes from the soggy midwest.

I love the pins! Are you in the ICE group with Amber or does she have another group? I have been out of the loop for a while so I missed that swap. It would have been a fun one.
