    Looks like I will be posting the first entry this time around.

    I have these a plenty in my garden and along with the daffs, the crocus and the green starting to appear, it is spring. So I thought this of bluebells would fit well for the theme.

    They were made from sheet, tubing and wire. Using a dapping block for doming 5mm discs I then soldered them to a length of tube. Pierced 3/4 of the way down the tube, and then with a fine 3 square file, filed between each petal. And a fair bit of soldering to make them come together.


    I kept the bells semi-closed for earrings to reduce risk of catching on long hair.

    Beautiful Wallace. I especially like the way the bluebells hang down from the earring wire.

    So pretty and so spring like! I've just had some bluebells pop up in my garden that I didn't even realise were there.

    Gorgeous work Wallace. I love the necklace. I don't think that the earrings would catch too badly if the bells were open as and personally, if I were wearing them I'd have my hair up to show them off. You have set a high standard for this months theme (as did James last month).

    Thank you Ceri. The Bell ones do catch - they have been tried, but not with hair up as that isn't the person's thing. Both types have been made though. Thanks again.
