Paint me a picture

Or a picture frame at least! I have been quite busy lately with school and stuff and in my spare time I have been stocking up a little for Christmas. These Celtic Picture Frames are now available in my eBay shop and there will be more lovely glass to follow as soon as its all dried *lol*

As Mo forgot the borax this week at jewellery glass, I wasn't able to get the finishing touches to the solder on my heart pendant, so I started making a ring instead. This is made from copper with a random line design pressed into it. It was so easy to do I was shocked *lol* It will need soldering to finish it off, and I haven't decided whether to add a bit of enamelling as well. It's a nice wide ring, so it may not need anything else. The join where I pierced it is a little crooked, but hey, it was my first attempt at cutting a cylindrical shape rather than a flat one! I'll see what I think when it's soldered and polished. I also had a go at making jump rings. Again, they were so easy!

It was my Mums birthday on Thursday and one of the gifts I made her was this Tinkerbell painting. (Yeah, she likes Tinkerbell!) I haven't seen her to give her her gifts yet as she is away in Torquay with my Dad at a Rock n Roll Weekender (My folks, the party animals! *lol*) It's painted in gouache with a little sparkly fairy dust. I hope she likes it, Tinkerbell (the real one) has a bit of a weird shaped face (if you've ever looked at a piccy of her) and I had to play with it a little to get it looking okay. I've just got to find a frame for it now.
