Project 3 of Deryn’s challenge

So this one I did a couple different ones. My first one I liked So so. When I finished with the second one I liked it more. Though I love these techniques and will be working on more like these in the future.

I used Brass sheet metal and wire. With a mixture of different beads on each.

With the second one the sheet metal was a thinner piece so I was able to use some decorative scissors for the bottom edge.

I also was able to complete project 4, but more on that later.

thanks for visiting.

Hey Melissa, You did a great job on you bead shelves! Very pretty...

Nice job, Melissa - I love both pieces - I especially like the way you used the wire to create movement in the second piece. I'm looking forward to seeing project #4!

Hi Melissa,

You've created two completely different looks with project 3, very cool! The first has a southwest feel to it while the second has an aged feel - lovely!

I'm a little slower getting these done but I finally complete a small wall ornament for Ornament Thursday. You can see it here: http://tinyurl.com/5hw27r

Mary's book is a good one to work through. Everyone's projects look so different! Are you working on another one? I'm working on the pod now.

Happy Ornament Thursday!
