Happy Mama's Day!


A gift for my mama! She loves green. I experimented by making this bezel with the new copper I got in the mail a few days ago. It took some figuring out and I know there is plenty of room for improvement, but I had such a fun time! I Have a lovely hole punch set somewhere in my studio. It decided it didn't wan to be found so as a last resort I had to nail the holes and then widen them with my dremel tool. I was hoping that a good tumble would make the light and dark patches less noticeable but they are actually growing on me.  The green floral square was an extra piece I had left over from a order and had no idea what to do with it. I was pleased as pop corn to find a matching heart in my stash for the bottom. My mom has had a life long love of Ireland and I remember that as a child, green was her favorite color. I hope my mama loves it.
