As you all know I'm currently working on jewellery pieces for the little local exhibition I'm having in September. My plan had been to have all the pieces finished by the end of August but that has gone slightly awry to say the least! LOL However I am about halfway towards my goal of 50 pieces and I thought I'd share some of them with you.

Vintage tin and vintage crystal beads. The red on the tin pieces rather groovily appears when it's sanded! I've made several other pieces with it as well and love the way it looks.

Perspex heart, found bottle cap and tin. The perspex isn't quite as dayglo pink as it appears, it's just because I scanned it with white paper behind I think!

Vintage brooch altered with dictionary text and tiny washers. It was incredibly fiddly to do but I love the result!

Vintage tea caddy tin, brass name plate, vintage jewellery piece and beads. The word says "warrior", not very visible in the scan.

Vintage tin, mica, text and beads. I've used spacers to hold the mica away from the tin which isn't really apparent in the scan.
