Found these at a bead shop, but surprise surprise these arnt beads at all !!These are embellisments used on embroidered fabrics , who knew??
Well at the risk of annoying fashion designers, I intend to use these and all the other varieties the seller had to make earrings, bracelets , necklaces you name it :D

I have always loved repousing metal and with this design I got a chance to put two of my favorite things together, repouse and enameling !!
This is stage 1 of of the piece and am quite happy with the way the design has translated onto the metal.

Step Two : Enameled version !! something about enameling that brings life to everything it touches! This piece while beautiful on its own now seems to have got a unique personality thanks to the enamel colours. Hope to finish stringing it so it can finally be worn!
