    Just to get this months competition started, this is a batch of silver Christmas leaves I made from silver sheet and wires, they are Holly, ivy and Mistletoe, a friend asked me to make them as casting patterns for some jobs he had planned.

    A playful entry from me this month bringing inspiration from my other crafting hobbies: an homage to that long-standing tradition of cheesy festive earrings worn at the office christmas party, along with tinsel in your hair and your favourite festive jumper!
    (Also a vague nod in the direction of some mixed media designs I want to develop using natural felt as an alternative way to incorporate colour into my pieces instead of traditional gems)

    These are tiny needlefelted snowmen set on handmade argentium wires.

    Here's my five pence. Made today with thick copper wire, fibula/safety pin brooch. About an inch and half in length.
    Want to make a few more of these though the hammering is v tiring.

    This is the nearest I have to a Christmas bauble
    The framework is made from forged oval silver wire. Each link of the chain is hand forged to continue the flow around the neck. Finishing off with a spectacular bezel set flashy Labradorite

    Something from over a decade ago that demonstrated a) lots of saw piercing may not be economically viable and b) if you work from wonky clip-art as your master, no-one will believe it isn't your piercing is at fault
    (1.2mm gilding metal)

    Happy Christmas everyone.
