winter brooches Worked back late tonight after the space closed so that I could get stuck into my winter brooches. Soldered the findings on the back and then had fun doing the first step of painting them…but have run out of white paint!!……now they need to dry for a while before the next stage. For the opening, I thought I could freeze them in thin blocks of ice, then pin them to the wall and have them drip, drip dripping, like melting snow…..but Mel wasn’t so keen on that idea…….
