The middle top one was an experiment - putting one coat of glaze, then a mulberry flower & then adding another coat of glaze. The result (although it doesn't really show in the photo) is the flower seems to float a little above the surface of the tile. I've got some sequin type flowers which I might try next!

I still have more stuff to add (& I need to work out how to photo necklaces so that the picture ends up square) but as it's free to sell on there at the moment, what is there to lose!?

The last two flower ones are photos that I have taken and shrunk to tiny size! I haven't got the bails yet for mounting them but I am quite please with how they have turned out.
My second bit of crafting today was this ring :
It's made using a 18mm sieve blank, glass leaves, acryllic flowers & pearls, seed beads and a Swaro crystal. I've wanted to make this kind of ring for ages and finally bought a lovely sieve blank from www.Nostalgiabeads.com as I came across them at the Haydock bead fair on Sunday.
I am officially CHUFFED :-)

They proved quite tricky to photo because of the glossy nature of the glaze. But I was pleasantly suprised that they look OK! I need to get some bails to secure onto the back, but they are such good fun to make & I recommend ScrabbleGals tutorial!
