This pretty thing went to a small Swedish village yesterday – there is a special kind of excitement in knowing that someone on the other side of the world is willing to pay international shipping, wait for ages, and then pay customs fees just to be able to wear something you made with your own hands.
I saw this ancient bee coin from aleyma.tumblr.com on my dash, and I just wanted it so badly because bees. I made a silver replica to use as a pendant, and it’s all pretty and sparkly, but I’m comparing the pictures now, and of course – the 387-301 BC coin looks like a real bee, whereas my bee looks like a smiling, deranged lunatic.
I’m currently working on heart and puzzle pieces for the Autism Awareness Campaign (hence my lack of updates). This is just a wax model; the finished charms will be in sterling silver. It’s an honor for me to be a part of this project, I hope to do it justice.
