Allie's Gift

As most of you know by now ... Allie was the winner of the December Draw.

In my haste to get her gift in the mail ... I totally forgot to scan it ... but she was kind enough to snap a pic and forward to me after she received it.
This pin finished is barely 2" in diameter.....has 7 teeny patches...and embellished with lots of metallic threads for glitz. I love those green dagger beads at the bottom ... found them at a shop down on Queen St. in Toronto...called Arton....they have some of the coolest stuff.

Thanks all ... Allie took a great pic of it...very HD...but it still doesn't quite capture the full charm of the piece...the metallic threads are more radiant...and those small faceted glass beads above the daggers have an Aurora Borealis finish that refract light. really is amazing how much stuff you can fit on such a small piece!

I totally enjoyed making this one...and the rewarding part is that Allie loves it...and does plan to wear it with pride!
