Posted by 2 on

While we're leading up to the vintage market next Saturday there is not a lot new...apart from more crochet beanies and scoods so we have a wide rang of colours.              That said... what a busy Sunday...I'd decided I really needed to bite the bullet and finish a couple of pieces and also take courage and refresh myself on soldering silver..the pictures from which will be in posts during this week.

These are 30 mm by 40 mm (not including the bail)... and are metal with clear resin.This has ensured that they are lighter than the original group which have quite weighty domed glass The layered watch parts give a definite depth and 3 dimensional effect which is not shown by the photograph... and the...
