    Default Theme Challenge ~ Muse

    'Muse' - a piece inspired by something/someone.
    Take a picture of what/who inspired you, make your piece, and show us the two photos.

    Well my muse was Nicci and the gorgeous earrings she made for the metal bashing challenge. See here.
    I'd not really come across fold forming before but seeing these made me want to have a go. Its taken a while for me to get round to it but I've finally had a go. My earrings don't look like Nicci's, I didn't intend them too, but she was my muse as she was the one who made me want to try it out.

    I'm really pleased with the result. Its a lot of effort, especially the unfolding bit!
    If anyone's interested, I've done a little blog post about them. Link in sig

    Default Siren's Necklace

    I've just finished this piece, which I've called Siren's Necklace because I already had Mermaid's Pendant.

    It's inspired by rock pools and the sea generally . I can't load images I've tried two different ways, pasting the url from flikr and copying the code and pasting that in , neither gives me an actual image at allso heres a link to my flikr page.http://www.flickr.com/photos/leyh/ If anyone can tell me why the flikr approach doesn't work I'll be very grateful.
