Snow is gone - magnolia is blooming AND..... a jewellery post (drumroll please?)

I was sent two 'die-formed' pieces of copper just after Christmas from Art Jewelry Magazine
This was one of them after I punched a bunch of holes in it...

First coat of enamel
I made some of my red enameled poppies to decorate it.. they were suppose to go  around the bump but I couldn't get them to look good on that side so  they went in the bump!
Then I built it a hand made copper and bead chain...
The other piece was oval (I did trim it) The copper was heat treated then'riveted' to an enameled backing  and attached to a 'me-made' copper chain

Couldn't find my liver of sulpher so tried a boiled egg... Never again.  Mainly because I've found my liver of sulpher (right where it was suppose to be - and will never misplace it again)!  and my DH thought it was a major waste of an egg!

I love the poppy pendant especially you did a great job with both I have always liked the look of enamel just not got anywhere I could set up for doing it.
My magnolias are almost over now just a few flowers left, the east wind got magnolia Vulcan ( I posted a picture in a previous post ) before the winds came but Leonard Messel is still holding on for a bit. Camellias have been exceptionally good this year, I think the lovely warm weather we got last summer helped!
