The photo doesn't do this justice, I cut out the shape and then hammered it into a 3D shape, it has turned out the way I imagined it, and am really pleased with it. Will definitely do some more 3D pieces.

December has been quite hectic with all the preparations, and so I haven't had time to post all the things I have been doing. I have also been trying, without success to take better photos, but hopefully in the New Year, I will be able to go and take lessons from someone who really knows what he is doing!!! Watch this space, in the meantime, here are the earrings I made Mum for Christmas, they are clip-ons and I think they turned out quite nicely, I hope Mum likes them.

I almost forgot to post this, this is a purple swarovski crystal, and I used a big stone for 2 reasons, one being that it is fashionable at the moment to have large stones in rings, and the second reason being that obviously bigger is easier, haaahhaaaa, wrong, this was much harder than the first one I did on course, which was about a quarter of the size. But eventually I got this right and am glad I persevered, because it has turned out well.
Hope you think so too!!! Now to attempt a large oval? We'll see.
