Pine cone wonders

I love going for walks around the neighbourhood. I get some of my best design ideas then. After a very wet spring, the plants on my walking route have had an enormous growth spurt. I found an abundance of gorgeous little cones on a pine tree and thought to myself that they would look amazing reproduced in resin.
This is how they came out.

 

I made a pair of earrings for myself to see what they looked like and got heaps of compliments when I wore them. They were even more impressed that I made them myself.  A couple of them said that they looked like miniature grenades complete with pin. I guess I shouldn’t have made them in black.  I poured some gold ones too for my sister to match an outfit for an upcoming party.

I’m going to work on them this weekend and list a few items in my shop!

  1. thanks B! I can't decide whether I should list or if I should be creating.

  2. oh my goodness that is a good idea, very clever. And ditto to the person above me, they do look a lot like blackberries!
