Beautiful Gifts from Jen Crossley of Australia~

Jen made the incredible birdhouse from flat metal!  Amazing, and the patina is beautiful, the body of the birdhouse is etched, the pictures do not do it justice.  Some people make similar ones using pipe, but Jen does it from a flat piece of metal.  I am just now learning to solder and it truly is an art form.  The second necklace is made from a beautiful small gold tin.  Jen used a vintage tin type photo, and a small metal piece to complete it.  Inside is a small handmade book.  I will take a photo, it is amazing.  The watch pendant does not show up well at all, but it is lovely!  It has the watch working parts on the reverse.  It felt like Christmas!  Thank you Sis!
