1st of March 2012

Last year I made an entry about the 1st of March and the tradition around it. I won’t repeat the whole story. This year the Weasel made again something for this occasion. Inspired by this tutorial from Elsa Mora’s blog, the Weasel went to the store and bought modelling clay and paint, and searched through his treasure box and found there French beads, a piece of felt, golden ribbons and golden dust. The motive, a snowdrop and a butterfly, is a usual spring theme used usually on these little brooches.  Since finding an acceptable red-white thread here is quite a challenge, the Weasel let tradition a bit aside and went for purple and gold. The success was just as great.

  1. I loved Gaby’s broach/martisor when she first posted a pic – now that I see how it was made I admire it even more!
