The Flutterby Crafter. We all altered a paper mache Torso and the range of styles was amazing! I got my colour and Ten Second Studio metal embossed and applied on the day but knew it wasn't "finished" . The stand came a little later courtesy of Ann's handy husband, and it sat on my desk patiently waiting. I knew it needed something that went beyond the frame but it was when looking for something else I found the mesh in my stash (isn't it always the way, we forget what we have till we look for something else we've lost and find a forgotten treasure or two). So I fiddled a bit and in the end decided this was just right.

I've been playing with the resin again, using vintage images in bezels I've coloured with Inka Gold paints and some glitetry loveliness! I have back stories for these two cuties. Angelina cannot wait to grow up be a beautiful elegant flapper, she dreams of a glittering future, full of romance and champagne, chauffer driven cars and dancing the night away while Cymbalene is a child of the faerie world, Cymbaline rides on the back of dragonflies, fashions gowns from spider silk, dances under the full moon, turns water to crackling diamond ice with her laugh and sips the morning dew on the lip of cowslips.

This is a pendant I made for a friends birthday recently. I thought of this vintage image as being the Grand Duchess Valerina, a striking and elegant woman, regarded by everyone as being highly intelligent and having a great presence. As the Grand Dame of an ancient royal dynasty she has a long term view of world affairs, the saplings she plants today will only become mighty oaks a long way in the future.
