This week so far - April 12

It's been a busy week for me. Our dog got an eye infection and so we've been visiting the vet. His eye is looking a lot better and is almost healed. Spring has also arrived and that means spring cleaning.
I was inspired by the cherry blossoms on the trees in the neighbourhood this week so I dug out my pressed flowers. I picked these flowers from the yard and pressed them last summer.
Last night I poured resin over them using a technique I learned in the workshops I took a few weekends ago. Here's one of the pendants, I'll be adding more to my shop this week.

I'm also expanding my line of bicycle jewellery. I'm really enjoying working with bike chain. There are so many different items that can be paired with the chain. This week I found some wooden checkers and drilled a hole in them. I've also made a pendant from dominos. Here's the latest
