I’ll try to keep this brief.
The good news was that I found the button I lost. The bad news is that somehow I’ve managed to lose the silver bead I made with it. I can’t say how upset that has made me. I’ve rifled through refuse and recycling – to no avail :-(
I have decided to cope with this by telling myself that if someone finds it, then they are very lucky and perhaps that was how it’s meant to be. I will make another one and take the hit on the cost and dedicated time. If I find it, all well and good – I’ll have one to give as a gift.
The bottom left of the montage will be the base for a mixed media piece. The large photo to the right is the cowell shell bead that I cast in fine silver. It’s the size of my little fingertip.
