Market Find

Found this at the local Saturday Market for the princely sum of $3.
Look at the cool texture!
A beheading, a de-bottoming and a slice through the guts and voila I see some fantastic copper sheet for me to commit mayhem upon. 
(Puts on 'helpless-female-with-power-tools' look and hands hubby the grinder with the metal cutoff disk)

Bead Table Wednesday

Some of the brooches I made for the craft show that didn't happen.

So for therapy I made a new banner for my blog. What do you think? 

What treasures are on your bead table? Go on give us a peek!

Big Girls Don't Cry

The Bundaberg Regional Art Gallery hold an annual craft show. Have never done any shows or markets so I thought it was an ideal opportunity to dip my toe in the water so to speak.
Made some jewelery and some cheap and cheerful polyclay brooches and fridge magnets. Spent ages constructing some earring and bracelet displays from some wonderful rusty reo mesh and timber collected of the ground.
Then the fates aligned to conspire against me and due to a mix up my stuff was left behind at the Gin Gin Gallery.

Can I cry now?
