Last night I went to Fullerton with Pip to see Nancy at the Gilding the Lily trunk show. We had a wonderful time (once we finally arrived. Pilar and I have a habit of getting off-track every time we set out for the Lily). Not only were there many gorgeous things to purchase but there were many fabulous people, a happy little bull dog, awesome food and delicious wine. It was just what I needed to end up the week.
I got several tiny little tintypes from Nancy and I got up this morning and spent the day working on this necklace which features one of them. It was a lot of work for me but also very enjoyable. The only thing I would have changed is all the chemicals involved. Working with acid and liver of sulfur in the same day is a lot of smelly business. I've not made any serious metal work for a while and just finding my tools was a big task (and not finding some very important tools created major extra work).
