How lucky are we??

so



Just check out the treasure box that the very generous Sunny bought in for us. First pic is of the whole lot and the second pic is of a few pieces I pulled out.
Also a shot of some of the bits I picked up at the Bead and Gem show. Am going to get my hands on some PMC (precious metal clay), as I thought that looked like fun stuff to play with. Can't wait to start playing with some jewellery pieces, been very inspired by Ro Bruhn and her gorgeous work!
Last pic is the beginning stage of a 'doodad doll' inspired by Michael De Meng. This is in the very raw stage, have just painted it all white recently and hope to start adding some colour and detail today.
Will upload some pics of pieces I have been working on inspired by the Bernie Berlin ATC book. If you don't have this, you have to get it!! So many fun techniques using materials you will already have...
Had a look at some Dremels yesterday, would love to know what Model you guys use. I though the 600 looked like the one I would need??

WOW Jo what a great box of treasure. The green and silver mechano bits have great potential for hanging dangley bits off and the gold patterned circular pieces at the top would look great in an assemblaaaaage. Thanks for mentioning my jewellery, look forward to seeing your doll.

Wow, look at all those treasures - Australia must think her women have gone mad lately - collecting all this junk/treasure - we are all obsessed - a good obsession mind you. hey Jo, dont forget to use the liquid nails for some added texture - if you like that kind of look. Can't wait to see it finished.
