Eternal Beauty cuff and Bottle Cap Necklace

This is the last cuff I made from my etching session before I went to Adelaide. Its etched and aged with patina. Brass cabochon with vintage image and ice resin plus small brass wings.

 On the same day I also made several bottle cap necklaces. This little steampunk one is my favourite of them all I think. Embedding cogs, crowns etc with ice resin gives the piece more depth. I left the length of the ball chain long so they hang allot lower but can be adjusted shorter if the wearer wants. I think I made another four different bottle cap necklaces and another vintage glam brass ring that I will get up soon. Managing my day to day life allot better now I have a better routine but I'm still missing Grant hugely *sigh*.

I had a dilation and bolus steroid injection into my left shoulder yesterday to try and decrease the scar tissue and inflammation that I have developed from post op rotator cuff repair in February...can you all say "FREAKING SORE" ...well it was after the local wore off big time but not so bad this AM. Here's hoping this does the trick. Hope to get some inky art done when it settles more plus some more jewellery work done too :o)
