really reel

For the crafter who has everything. 90 grams of pure silver! I've been planning these for some while and finally the 'hard' bit is done. I wasn't going to post them 'til I had the textile component complete but I just couldn't help myself. They have been cast from a wooden cotton reel in fine silver and after filing and polishing the ends they were sent off to Bailey (he was the talented one who carved the silver ring for me a few months ago) to be engraved. They are intended to be neckpieces strung on handworked silk fabric cord- that bit hasn't been started yet- but would also be lovely just as they are. At 90gm they'd make great paperweights!
