Panda WIP

FINALLY!!! I've started back at something!!! Sheesh! So to take you back to how this started...Klinger and I were out Thrift storing, and I found this metal frame..that just spoke to me of having leaves and something dangling off it. And when I got home, my tesserae exchange from Luisiana Greetings was here, and when I opened the pkg, it had the most wonderful leaves!!! Then I decided on a panda, and a crystal for the dangly part. I found a panda pattern and shrunk it down to a size I wanted to use, and this is what I have so far... It isn't finished yet, and I envisioned the leaves different but am not adept at wire work so...it is what it is...so far...

RE: Panda WIP

Well, it's about danged time you showed up w/a project!!!!, and a darlin' one at that. You have such original ideas. If these leaves are the ones I have from Michaels, this is a very small piece. What's the height of the stand? Wish I could solder. When I went to RoboMargo's barn sale I bought three pendants made from shards. She said she uses copper solder. Think I'll have to do some research and Heaven forbid I try another phase of this hobby, but yours and MEADEL's work has put an idea into my head. Oh, where is that other lifetime I need for all the ideas I'd love to work on.

I have to do a copper patina on this, and redo the face, I just drew it on with a marker to see how it would look, but so far it has gotten me back in my room again! YES!!!

Jane, your whimsical little panda is a delight hanging in that charming frame. The leaves are perfect on there. You have a great imagination and this piece is adorable.

Inspirational! Soldering is a dream of mine to Slow, I will just have to add it to the list.
Not having place to work makes it sooo difficult!
Great work Calamity!

I think your wire wrap is great ! I was wondering if you did jewelry too.

cj, that is too cute. i like what you did with the leaves, very unique. i want you to know that i have been lookin for some more of those leaves ever since the exchange, cuz you liked them so much, but i have had no luck at all. they were on sale at one of the wal-mart here, and there are no more to be found, i really wanted to send you some more , cuz after i saw some of the boxes sent , in the exchange, had so much stuff, i felt i should have sent more.i do have some of the little leaves that slow mentioned, ( from Michael's ) if you would like some of them, i would be more than happy to send them to you? but they are much smaller.

RE: Panda WIP

You work in a thrift store !! lucky you. Kind of like a fox in a hen house eh ? lol I chuckled about the mirror..I can totally visualize that conversation adding in some Cinderella images. mirror mirror on the wall...I want to be decorated by the best of them all !! hehehe

( funny, I was just wondering if you can paint the back of a mirror, say if I wanted to make some of those moravian stars out of the mirror in my hallway..I don't like the reflection it shows me these days..Who is that old woman in there anyway?)
