    Hi this is my first go at entering. Usually I make minimalist designs but every now and again I have a hankering for something ott. These are made up of copper earwires, copper beads, tassels and polymer discs. The hardest part was making sure everything hung in the correct position, some time was spent fiddling around with jump ringsClick image for larger version.

    These are for my husband for Christmas and they are rather special to me, they use the left over piece of red gold wire I used for my wedding ring and Nathan asking for cufflinks gave me a fresh project to work on to find my way back to myself in the midst of pnd.

    This is a little landscape piece I made with textured silver as the background, a reticulated 'mountain', and an orange sapphire. Keum boo gave the gold details, and then an oxidised wash gave the rest of the colours, which came out amazingly bright.

    Lovely colourful entries this month.

    Kathryn, so lovely to use gold from your wedding ring, and I'm glad that you're starting to feel better. PND is a scary thing and not talked about nearly enough. x

    ooh such lovelies. Seriously colourful

    PND really is a silent issue Ryn, hope you are getting some support xx

    Here is my most colourful creation. Each tube setting was individually cut, there are no butt joints, each has been drilled to fit the wire in the seahorse and the tube. Stones are roughly 1.5mm. I only just had fingers left after doing this one!
