About this design:

I have been having a lot of fun playing with color and some new molds that I got! I really like the Adirondack acrylic paint dabbers but they are definitely NOT for the faint hearted of color!:)

    This is exquisite. All your work displayed here is remarkable and I’m loving how you put what looks like a jump ring on the top of a cardinal. Not only good for a pendant or charm but earrings as well.

    OMG, Jess they are all so fantastic, the rooster is just so cute, I love everything else, this time you beat me to headpins with a different texture, your molds are all wonderful, I have been trying to carve my own, but it is not as easy as it looks :D
