A New Craft

Well...I found a book at the library on metal embossing and decided to try my hand at it. It's actually not that hard and is a craft I can complete in one sitting...which is how I like to work. The first item I made was a Renaissance medallion that I'm thinking of adding to the top of a cigar box 'treasure' box I'm going to make. The second item I made is a light switch plate that I'm going to mount in my office.

I also made a Scrabble tile mini art bracelet. I used three tiles with my initials. I did a mini collage on the "S" tile, a watercolor sunset scene on the "A" tile and an acrylic mountain scene on the "M" tile. I filled in the rest of the bracelet with cloissaine beads and added a tiny dragonfly charm at the clasp.
