Nothing much to see here.......

......except this. Can't decide if it's the ugliest thing I've made or it's just quirky, or strange.The naked torso's are opals poured into a mold. She's got cellulite too! The black discs with the African lady are shrink plastic charms I made awhile ago.
Little silver charms that I beat the heck out of with a hammer to distress them. They were a bit too shiny and then I glued a tiny picture of a Japanese lady and covered them with glossy accents.
And just a lot of bits and bobs from my scrapbooking days. i.e ribbon charms that I also distressed and some recycled glass beads from an old pair of earings.
I bought the chain on line a few weeks ago and it wasn't quite what I had in mind. Thought it would be black as in a true black, not antique silver. Also it's quite short so I need to add more chain to it. I should name it Ethnic, what with Greek torso's, African heads and Japanese ladies, it's certainly a mixture of countries.
Can't really imagine anyone wearing it to be truthful. Unless they're a combination of Lady Ga Ga, Marilyn Manson and Grace Jones.
Feedback people, please. Be truthful, I can take it. I won't cry if you say it's ugly (well, only a little bit).
