Sri Lankan Coin Necklace

I'm waiting for my camera battery to charge so that I can take some high quality photos, but here are a few images of the last necklace I made. This one is made from a really beautiful Sri Lankan coin. I hand polished it and hung it between two delicate chains.


The coin carries the Armorial Ensign of Sri Lanka on the front. The reverse of the coin shows the value in numerals and in Sinhala, Tamil and English below and year of issue at the bottom with SRI LANKA in Sinhala on top.

Black Swan

A Black Swan themed treasury as I'm going to see it this evening! Swans and Ballet themes, very romantic:

Some beautiful things for 2011

Sorry for the large gap, Christmas and New Year fun took over. My etsy shop is currently in vacation mode while I restock - Christmas got a bit hectic with orders! But I have had some lovely new little charms delivered - gold teapot and rocking horse.

Right, something pretty to bring in the new year:

I absolutely covet this piece by dishfunctionldesigns, I'm not normally a fan of heart shaped jewellery, but I LOVE the figures:



This is a very eerie beautiful short film using silhouette art. Makes me want to do lots of silhouettes!



And finally some music:

Happy New Year all!
