Nancy's Prize

I finally finished the prize for my first giveaway.

Major apologies to Nancy for this taking so incredibly long.
There were MANY challenges with this (all fork related). And I've learned a few lessons (more on that later).

This is a sterling fork charm pendant on a velvet ribbon. Nancy can wear it short or long on the ribbon or put it on a chain.

Here are some details of the individual charms:

The center large charm is a Rumikub game piece. The other two charms were stamped on shrink plastic.

I think this is the first jewelry I've posted here on the blog. Click here if you'd like to see more.

Things I learned or was reminded of:
  • Make the prize BEFORE running the contest OR
  • Don't make something I've never made before!
  • Forks are difficult to bend, cut & drill
  • My husband is VERY helpful
  • I need a smaller tip for my new solder iron (Weller 100 - boy does it work GREAT!)
  • I need to practice, practice, practice with my soldering
  • I love my dremel
  • I need to bring my vise inside
Hope you like it ~ especially Nancy ~ Sherry
