Come on Snowflake – show your mettle …

Or, should that be, “show you’re metal?”

If last week’s update owed it’s metallic hue to the gleaming glitter of gold, then this week’s theme is the softer, subtler shade of silver and the goth glam of gunmetal.

In addition to the above lacey snowflake filigree, we have these rather interesting diamond shaped links, and even more fili-gregious, this rose-window evoking filigree piece, and this dimensional filigree fan piece. These pieces are light enough to be bend around things like cabochons and large stones, so that you can make things with a caged effect – or customizing the shape to fit.

Now these two pieces – such fun! This dimensional dragonfly and writhing wyvern are stamped from metal and have a hollow back. Use a hole punch to hang them in what ever oriention you want – dragonfly – wing? head? both wings? How will you hang it? Or you can glue them on, or glue on a bail.

Here’s a thought too – if you are into casting resin – you could buy one and make a mold and make a dozen or more. Say you make a hundred of the dragonflies in resin and then hung them from a tree in your back yard – how cool would that be? Ok – that’s me getting carried away – but you can picture that, right? It would be cool! I’m not talking about the wyvern/griffony creature because if you don’t get yourself one of those, all the more for me!
