This is one of my first enameled pieces using UTEE.  I had a great time making this one, first setting a base with paint, then using brightly colored alcohol inks, and then melting the UTEE on top.  The picture really doesn't show the full dimension of the vibrancy of this one!http://www.etsy.com/listing/81817403/celestial-necklace-moon-and-star


With the recent flood disaster in Australia!

With the recent flooding that has hit 3/4 of the state of Queensland, Australia where i live i just want to let the Team Filigree know that the DUST Team on Etsy that i also belong too has opened up the AusDisasterRelief Appeal Etsy shop to help raise much needed money for those who have been effected. All proceeds are going to the The Queensland Premier's Disaster Relief Appeal.

My hometown of Rockhampton has also been effected by this disaster. We are also now in recovery mode.

Here is the link on how to donate if you wish.

Here is also a link of the shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/AusDisasterRelief

The Forgotten Flower Bracelet

I absolutely love to design with patinaed items. This bracelet combines my love of filigree with the "old" look of patina. The flower came in several parts and was fun to assemble... overall, this was a very fun design project...when combined with the little flowered dangles, I think it is simply charming.
