Similarly here, but my wife refuses to take it out in case she marks it or breaks it.Β  Serious works of art.

Tell freda to use it nev , the sticks are pretty tough , but if she does break it , lin could make her a copy πŸ‘.

Nice work, must take her a while to do? πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘ŒπŸ‘ŒπŸ‘ŒπŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

Those badges/brooches only take minutes (Β  i think they're fantastic) , but each stick takes quite a few hours of work . Just peeling the bark takes hours because she takes it off in tiny pieces , that leaves the wood with a hammered finish . When I mention how inefficient this method is , she has one of those artistic hissy fits , because it's "Β  her style " πŸ˜….

I reckon that she'd love a go at that.

She doesn't do erotic stuff you know.

She would for that old smoothy ditchmanπŸ˜….

Thankyou for the kind words gents . She'll be chuffed when I show her. It's a shame that the pics aren't so great , because the sticks and badges look so much better inΒ  the flesh.Β

You should however know better than to offer helpful suggestions it’s never going to go well πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

I'm surprised that it got this far before it hit the downward ramp 😊.

Hiya mick.

She hasn't started selling them yet mate , she's still doing her artistic temperament thing , and changing them , and flouncing around like noel cowerd , but I'll tell her not to change the bird one πŸ‘.

I can't be completely sure , but I think she mentioned that they would be for sale at £6.00 , but please don't hold me to that price , because I don't always listen when she's talking 😳😳😳.

I get used to seeing the things that she makes , so I just sort of get used to lovely stuff being around , and don't really take much notice of stuff , but these brooches/badges have really made me sit up and take notice . Each one is a stunning little unique work of art . I really wish that everyone could see how perfect they look in the flesh .

Oh if a fox one along the line of design of the bird should come along I would be interested in that, well the wife would.

Lovely mick .

I'll ask her to do a couple , and if you see anything that you fancy , I'll send them together.πŸ‘.

Cheers nev.Β  I find these tiny little pyrographed and painted brooches absolutely fascinating . I wonder if she could do a knife handle , then seal it with a clear resin ?,Β  that would look pretty cool .
