Spoon full

Well I have been away for an unexpected Holiday last week, I took off to Perth for a week on my own to spend sometime with my friend Chris who is an amazing textile mixed media artist please check her work out it is truly amazing.
I was lucky enough to shop till I dropped no not Christmas goodies but art supplies; you wait to see what I have been up to with the help of Chris.
I also got a chance to catch up with dear friends as well for dinner, tea and laughs
Before I left my mojo was on a high thus a bracelet with mother of pearl which I dyed to make look a bit old, and a tea spoon necklace I had being dieing to make .I have the front view and if the spoon flips over to the wrong side another feature there as well. Both images on the spoon are yes you guessed it Tin photos; one has an advertisement of the photographer which I love.


Cant wait to show you what I have up my sleeves thanks to chris.
I will be teaching next year the resin ice and bezels so if your interested and get at least 10 people min hopefully more people would be great , I will see what I can do

Hi Jen. Sounds like you had an absolute ball in Perth, and being unexpected made it all the more precious. Interesting fabrications. I like the necklace and the concept of the key and tin photos. Season's Greetings.
