BUSY, BUSY, BUSY!

I've been so fortunate, lately, to to have had time to finish an order AND play with new things.  Today was one of those days, that everything fell into place and I don't have those very often, so I took full advantage of it.  First, the boxes I wanted for my new ornaments were dropped off this morning (yay!),  then everything went perfectly on the finishing touches, for an order and last, I was able to finish up another bear for sale.  I decided to do two posts - one for the ornaments and one for the bear.  It's difficult to decide on a fair price, because they took me ages to do, but I am just learning tu cut glass etc., so I hope to improve my skills.  I hope you enjoy them. :o)  Shipping will be by airmail, and for now, the cost will be $10.00.

Poor Pitiful Peter - This ornament is made from duplicate copies of Beatrix Potter's Peter Rabbit,  which I have been altered to allow me to layer the images into a 3 dimensional scene, similar to Paper Tole.  Each primary feature has been layered with an acrylic glaze, to make it stand out.  It is encased in class and finished with solder, that has been aged. The dimensions of the ornament are 2 1/2" x 1 " x 1/2". It is finished with an organza ribbon and comes with it's own presentation box, with a matching picture of the ornament, on the box
SOLD



Rabbit Drinking Tea - This ornament is made from duplicate copies of one of Beatrix Potter's lovely bunnies, which I have been altered to allow me to layer the images into a 3 dimensional scene, similar to Paper Tole.  Each primary feature has been layered with an acrylic glaze, to make it stand out.  It is encased in class and finished with solder, that has been aged. The dimensions of the ornament are 2 1/2" x 1 " x 1/2". It is finished with an organza ribbon and comes with it's own presentation box, with a matching picture of the ornament, on the box
