My very talented musician friend, Billy, gave me two of his defunct oboe reeds last week and I've just made a pendant out of one of them.

I'm not sure it's finished, I may outline the word in some way yet, still pondering over that one! But since it's an age since I've shared any artwork I thought I would post it anyway! ;o)

Oooh Maz, this is exquisite! Even if you aren't sure you've finished!

I'd never have guessed what your starting point was

What a lovely pendant, I wouldn't have known what an oboe reed looked like either, but this is lovely.

To be honest, I had no idea what an oboe reed looked like either until I saw one last week! ;o) Thanks for your lovely comments, I road tested the pendant by wearing it to a meeting this evening and I'm still undecided about whether to outline or not!
