Another day, more packing - and of course, another unfinished project distraction…now complete!
“A Dose of Confidence”
Lapis Lazuli, silver plated spoon.
This pendant was created from a vintage EPNS teaspoon, with a lovely piece of Lapis Lazuli containing a glittery display of pyrities.
Lapis is said to promote confidence, cool and calm inflammation, and even lower blood pressure! Whether you give this any value or not, this is still a lovely stone to wear.

“Bonded”. Rescued copper bracelet. Again I was distracted whilst packing stuff to move from the city shed to the country shed, and stopped to make this piece. Made from a broken and discarded rail bond - a piece of copper that joins rail track together to keep the track circuit complete. This will fit a large wrist - about 22cm around when closed. ...

Well done Tim your are amazing 👍👍

“Fire in the Hole!”
Fifty calibre bullet case, solid Australian opal, sterling silver, vintage pocket watch gear.
12 x 24 mm approximately.

So here we have a pendant that has a mixed history in its making. The bullet case was gifted to me by a friend who saves me the oddments she finds. The opal is cut and polished by me from rough that I have collected and is the third stone intended for this piece (the first shattered on insertion, and the second flicked off the bench and was last heard bouncing into a black hole). The opal has been inserted into the hole where the primer would have sat, and the pocket watch gear filled the back of the piece beautifully.
The opal has lovely colour, mostly greens and yellows and has to be viewed in sunlight to really appreciate the sparkle. (Video in comments).

Work in progress:

I have friends who know my penchant for creating “different” items from rescued and recycled objects, and save odd things they find for me. Here is a “case” in point (see what I did there?). Whilst sorting through her office, a friend found these spent bullet cases - unusual in both their location and calibre, and saved them in a box with other treasures for me. I love the old brass and noticed that the primer had been removed or fallen out.
What does one do with a fifty calibre bullet casing? Well, in my case, I cut and polish a piece of Lightning Ridge opal to fit the primer hole, cut the end off the case and create a unique pendant! I’m not finished yet, but I’m pleased with todays progress!
