For our 20th anniversary we went to Byron Bay for lunch,overlooking the sea.Dave bought me this gorgeous art nouveau dish/plate/earring holder,it looks like brass but is actually resin,so well done,she even has a shiny bottom,and a purple lotus bud,and her finger is swirling the water.I adore it and put earrings in it as soon as we got home.It was a lovely day all cool and cloudy and grey,i just about keel over on nice sunny hot days,like today.

I have liked this pattern for a while now,it is meant to be done on a loom,but you can square stitch loom patterns so i did.The silver beads are Toho permanent finish ,and the other beads my favourite jewel colours,though the purple beads show up blue in the pic.
As i didnt have a cabochon the size i needed i made one by mixing a scrap of silver sculpey into black and pressed into a cab mold i bought from a shop in Canada,baked and put on Liquid Glass and voila,gemstone cab.
