Fresh from the bench

Hello friends,

I just finished a whole bunch of my hand casted items. I sanded so much that my fingertips feel raw but with every turn all the pieces started to come together beautifully. I felt like I was on some kind of casting high. Out of 12 items that I casted yesterday all turned out, except one. It was a good day.
These items don't have the usual color punch to them like most of my other work does. But I'm totally okay with that. I wanted to achieve a more rugged and edgy look.
My mother had sent me a small box, stuffed full of different buttons that she had stashed away when she was still doing a lot of sewing. There are so many fun, vintage buttons that will make great molds for casting. I did use one of them, the one with the skull impression. Never thought my mother would have a "skull button" in her collection...hehehe.. Who knew?
I'll be listing these after my SALE is over, otherwise it will be too confusing to customers having some items in the shop that are not eligible for the discount. If there are any items from this new batch that you'd like me to reserve for you before they hit the shop, send me a convo through my ETSY shop.

I'll continue doing a bit more casting today and then it's Pizza night here at our place.
