Necklaces too, i've been playing with power tools!

Hello all, i've been really enjoying myself this past week. I'm on Easter holidays from work and have had a To Do list as long both arms and one leg but amongst all that I have distracted myself by drilling holes in wood.

So now I am pleased to present the Wooden Kaleidoscope Necklace! Available in the usual places...

Working with wood

I've wanted to create things from wood for a while but without the right equipment its not that easy!

A while ago I made some stripy A5 pieces using markers, masking tape and stickers and then went on to cut hexagonal crystal shapes out of them. I was really happy with them and could see potential for the triangles i'd cut out so went about trying to mount them onto wood.

The only real problem I had was getting the shapes cut out of the ply without having to use a junior hacksaw and take forever to do it. Luckily a friend stepped in and cut these babies out for me so now I would like to present...

the Hexagon Brooch! Clever name huh?

I carefully chose the triangles to put together and have varnished these chaps several times to protect them from wear and tear. The first one is in my online shops now.
