Fossils in metal and salad servers

I have done further work on some of the least over bits from the metal melt that I posted on earlier. I have turned the pieces into pendants and earrings. When Fiona saw the photos of the pieces she said that the dandelion images stamped into the textured metal reminded her of fossils in stone - I like that and think it is a true reflection on these pieces - see what you think.

For some time Fiona has suggested that it would be nice to have a set of silver-plated brass salad servers that complement the ladles and pate knife etc that have made their way from the garage-studio into the utensil draw. Well I finally got around to making as set as you can see below. Probably means we can pass on some of the bought ones.

    Your new salad servers are amazing as well!
