I wanted to make a necklace using one of the crystal owl pendants I brought back from Bali. Fossicked through my bead stash and found some small jade beads (at least I think that's what they are). The tag came off the string and I can’t quite remember what they are, you think you’ll always remember, but if you’re like me you wont, and some white beads, who knows what they are.
Anyway this is what I came up with.
A tiny green clay disc and a wee little brass charm with a dragon fly.
A close up of the owl.
And this just came out of the oven along with a few other pieces that need sanding and refining.
It will be a brooch because it’s quite large and quite bold and I like it. Scrap clay smooshed together and then stamped. Smooshing clay is a favourite past time of mine.
I played around with the above photo on my ipad using an app called Snapseed. It’s the best photo editing app ever, so easy to use and the results are great. I was lucky enough to grab it when it was free. But having played around with it a little I think it’s worth whatever the price is at the moment, something like $4.50 I think……..I could be wrong so don’t quote me.
