Getting Better All The Time...

... yep, humming a Beatles tune...

I've been doing a bit more hand-saw/piercing work, and had a couple failures along the way (hey - learning still), but my skills are improving... and I made some earrings to compliment my pierced necklaces (that's the way I roll)... oh, and I did another button flower cause I wanted to & my other one already sold... yep, way backed up on getting photos posted.

First, my problem children...

These 2 are mine (flaws), there are better ones below.
The one on the left had a drill bit break (see the little bright spot on the upper heart in the right lobe), but I needed the practice so I made it for myself.  The one on the right had issues with another tool, and I wasn't happy with it for a variety of aesthetic reasons... So, I now have a couple new pieces for myself (I don't make much for myself these days).

Now to my well behaved kids...

"Sally" - Sterling Silver, rough texture, pierced.
