Eye Made Some More Blinking Rings!

Well - a lovely lady in Switzerland wanted one, so I got off my lazy backside & made a few.....

The dolls eyes are (approx) 1940's and new (I didn't have to 'operate' on any toys).

I've also used crochet, faux bone, small vintage tins, resin, seed beads, sterling silver beads and more....

One ring band is brass, the other sterling silver and the third is felted wool.

Felt good to get off my backside :)

Nailed It Ring

Finally got this ring finished and photographed!

The focal part are some nails.....

I also used amethyst cubes, raw tiny diamonds, shards of pink vintage glass, citrine, sterling silver, NZ merino wool (hand dyed), acrylic paint, resin & a coconut ring.

Beer Bottle Top Table

Finally finished!  This table top is the result of much hard beer drinking (mainly by my friends of course!).  Nobody said it would be easy......

My kiddies helped sort the bottle tops into colours and set them out into flower patterns.

The we splodged on the grout!

And once the excess grout was sponged off - voila!

Guess Heineken in our beer of choice.......

Plus I still have a huge box of top leftover.....what to cover next...?

Double Ended Merino Fall Dreadlocks

Ginga Squid is back!!!!

Merino Fall Double Ended Dreads

Sorry for the long absence - I had to take a 'proper' job....

I have been busy with some hand dyed merino wool, wet felting into some gorgeous way-long dreadlocks.
