it’s always exciting-times here when i get to make some new pieces!!!
there have been a lot of ‘beginnings’ lately & frustratingly few ‘ta-das!’ so i’m very pleased to be able to share theses pics with you!
i grew up in the 70s, when the height of culinary exoticism was to dine out in a Chinese restaurant (even my father whose cooking specialties involved the term ‘fry-up’ attended Chinese cookery classes..) & my favorite part of the meal was the plate of fortune cookies served up at the end.
So this is the beginning of my tribute to the utter end-of-meal-joy which was the fortune cookie!
i didn’t have any idea of how i was going to make it, so i did a practice piece in copper which is a bit softer even than silver so a bit more forgiving (& cheaper to make mistakes in :))
the chain fit nicely through the piece which i prefer than having drill holes & rings
boring but true..
ps. the price is higher than others & that’s because of the time it takes to make + the amount of silver that’s made of (twice as much as my other necklaces)
