Don’t be fooled by the rocks that I got, I’m still Penny from the block…

I’ve recently been making faux gemstones and plan to make these in all of the birthstones! originally they were made with drill in bails:

but now they have these new stick on ones, making them much neater and giving a cleaner finish!:

The bails if you want to use them for your own jewellery come in packs of 10 for 50p in the PennyDog shop, and the “Diamond” earrings and pendant will be added to the “Sparkle” category a little later today!

Advice and opinions please!

As part of my Thursday Night Project (a weekly thing over at Crafteroo) I had a play about trying to create a new technique to imitate dew and verdigris using copper cut outs. I’m not convinced that it has worked particularly successfully. I think I like the leaf, which has got a textured amber finish, but not sure if the bird is right. It wasn’t intended to have an all over teal/green coating anyway, but it’s almost as if something is missing- any help/opinions greatly appreciated!
