Etched brass boxes!
Continuing my selfless promotion....wanted to show some of the cuties I'll be taking to Adorn Me to sell at vendor night. These little brass boxes are kind of fun, huh?
This one I call "Oh baby". My mom used that phrase a lot, she would like the tin type photo of the baby I mounted inside a vintage watch. I was going to solder the box on top, which wouldn't have been a problem, except the face of the watch is a heavy plastic. It would have melted, and I don't have any sheet glass to replace it, sooooooo... E6000 to the rescue. Nice and solid though.
Here are the rest of the little gems. There's "Soar", "Gingersnap", and "Flutter". I used some of my favorites...birds, rhinestone jewelry, insects, vintage buttons. I'm going to have to make more of these, they are really fun to make! Now what would you put inside to keep safe?
Maybe old buttons, pills, treasures, notes, candy? I like the candy part!!
