Something Brand New!!

I needed a shawl pin for the shrug I previous knitted so I made this one yesterday. My friend gave me the etched copper and I cut out a simple shape. It didn’t look good. It was too flat and had no dimension. Another friend suggested making it wavy by putting wire under the piece, then pressing it in a pneumatic press. That did the trick!! I colored it some using just heat and sealed it with a polymer sealant. Of course, I can’t make anything without glass in it so I made the little heart topper.

I think it turned out pretty cool!!
