|"Steampunk Victorian Butterfly Pin" |
by Lagaz Designs (Melissa Muir - 2011)
With this challenge we also had to use some of our own elements that we had on hand. Like re-using old jewelry parts, watchparts, etc. That part I got. However, this challenge was well....challenging. I like the look of Steampunk, but I have never attemped it before.
I was getting frustrated beyond belief with this. I wanted to take these pieces and throw them at the wall! I'd leave it alone, then come back to it, work for awhile, get frustrated and repeat the process! I give kudos to the people who can do this so easily. (Well, looks easy at any rate) Finally I got through it, and created something that even looked worthy. A "Steampunk Victorian Butterfly Pin" was born. And it was one helluva birthing process! lol!
