It is a collage of beautiful things. Vintage lace pressed into silver and the most mesmerising teal transparent enamel that I applied to a silver button, again imprinted with the same vintage lace.

I have to say, production has been high here in the Hybrid Handmade House. I have been clearing the decks because I feel another 'epic' project is upon me. There are some hunks of labradorite which need to be woven into a miniature symphony of silver and myth. I'm throwing in a few eskimos for good measure too. All will become clear mes amis! Until then - a bientôt.
