christmas tree pendant
Last year I rang my dad and asked him if my stepmum, Janet, had pierced ears. He swore she did and so I made her some cute little Christmas tree earrings.
Except that Janet does not have pierced ears.
It’s taken me all year to think what to make as a replacement
Sorry about the dodgy photos. I meant to ask Gareth to take some proper photos but I forgot, so waht you see hear are some very dodgy efforts with my mobile on something thats fundamentally hard to photograph.
I wanted to play with backsetting, which is something I hadn’t done before, and it had to be glass for the colour. Handmade glass for that lovely subtle texture. It took me ages to track down a stained glass person to cadge glass from and then it turned out there was a lady called Mia living down the street, who very kindly cut three pieces for me.
Mia’s website is herehttp://www.babulousglass.co.uk/
I’m moderately pleased with this piece, but delighted with the other one I’ve used for Janet’s this year’s Christmas present (which I can’t show you yet because Janet reads this to my dad). Haven’t had time to play with the third yet…
