    Lovely Gale, very unusual!

      Very unusual is right. It goes back to another piece created several years ago. My brain works in strange ways….

        It is funny how ideas linger – I have just started reworking a drawing I began four years ago!

    yes! Very cool… will it have a pin for wearing, or a way to wear it locket style? Of just an Object d’arte?

      I’m still working on a pin. I didn’t quite plan the hinge correctly on this first round. My initial thought was a pendant, but my fingers don’t want to go through the effort of creating the “chain” section.
      Object d’art is another option, but I really want to wear it instead. πŸ˜€

    This is great, I like the thread work, it looks so organic, must be a nice change to do something on a different scale. Karen

      It is nice to work on a much smaller scale but now I know I need to learn soldering. I’m also pulled to defrost a batch of paper pulp cover the next one differently. We shall see when I gather my energy and push forward. It’s stalled again! πŸ˜€

    I like them, too. Funny how scale changes things
