Metal 3D House


Here is my latest piece of Jewerly, I have always wanted to make a 3d metal house for many years this is my first try. It is made from all brass material.
I made one in paper years ago you might remember this one, but my alterment was a metal house (being the metal head I am lol)




I have etched the front of the house only and used an antique tin photo on the front.
My next house I'm working on will have a front opening door like a house locket, as I bought mini hinges from a hobby store and Mini nails about 3mm big, my old eyes aint what they used to be so alot of swearing and nails on the carpet.
I will show you a picture next time if I pull it off.

I can just picture you on your hands and knees groping around on the carpet for those itty bitty nails! Where's Captain Underpants when you need them? ;D

Your little house is charming, the nest and eggs is the perfect little dangle embellishment to finish the piece off.

Looks great Jen, I know exactly what you mean about the eyes, I've resorted to wearing one of those magnifying visor things, looks real cool, terrified my grand kids first time they saw me.
