New Toggle Clasps
These are my new clasps, they have all been texture using a rolling mill, two with texure plates (I’m calling them Wild Garden & Blossom) and the leaf with a natural leaf skeleton.After texturing I cut them to shape then punch the toggle hole and then dome them. The toggle bar is simply made from wire and hammered and sanded smooth.
You’ll find them in the New Items section on my website – http://www.lavidalerie.com/NewItems.html or by clicking on the photo above and I can make them in silver too!
I made some connectors to match – just add ear wires and beads if you want extra dangle
Chickens Nests in the Road
Each year after the snow leaves us a strange sign appears on our road warning of “Nids de Poule!” or chickens nests ! The first year we saw the sign we drove ever so carefully to avoid the nests only to find it’s just the French sign for pot holes ! It still makes us laugh each year when the signs are put up 😉
