Retro craft swap


Before I went away on holidays I was involved in a craft swap that was organised by the fabulous Bec from Fun with a little Wise Owl.

Everyone was given a person to send to & a different person to receive from.
(I will blog about the goodies I received once I return home, I forgot to bring the photo's with me!)

The theme of the swap was 'Retro' & you could interpret it any way you wanted.
The first thing that popped into my head was roller-skates, so I went with that.

Above is a picture of the pendant (chain not shown) I sent off to Bec, my swap partner.
I built the piece up in layers out of sterling sheet & wire for the laces & soldered it all together.

I really enjoyed making this piece as it was something different from all the custom orders I had been working on.
So when I re-open my stores I have decided to stock these along with some other shapes as I think they will be fun pieces to sell.
