Garden Greenery And New Enamel Earrings


It's a bit of a colour explosion on my blog this week - courtesy of enamels and the wonderful world of plants.

I've been flexing my sawing arm and produced these frame/moroccan style shapes from copper sheet which I then enamelled in a blast of green and turquoise opaque and transparent enamels.


I also cut some {much simpler} drop shapes that I enamelled in a mix of foxglove purple, mauve and bitter green. The last two colours are recent purchases and I love them! 




A couple of days ago I used my phone camera to take some quick snaps of my "garden" which is a really a small back yard {now even smaller thanks to my jewellery shed} which has a few pots in it. The plants are looking nice at the moment so I thought I'd capture them then play around with the photos on Fotor......



Beautiful nasturtium leaves - no flowers {or blackfly} yet but I do love their shape and the pattern of the veins.


Pretty pink geranium flowers


An osteospermum with a beautiful moth taking a rest on it's petals. It looks a bit like I've added the moth afterwards but it really was there.
Here's a close up of the moth...


I think that's enough of the flora and fauna for now, much as I love it. Here's a couple of photos of my cat Tuppence helping herself to some tuna straight from the can. She was too impatient to wait for me to put it in her dish. The photos are a bit blurred as I was laughing and they were taken at night so the light is bad.....



Til next time......

  2. Your nature inspired earrings are beauties! The flowers are very pretty. Moths can be so beautiful. This little guy is so sweet on the petal. That is one happy cat you have there. :)

    1. Thanks Val, I think Tuppence was very hungry that day, she isn't normally that rude :D
