New brooch at Ellie's Treasures

Ellie's Treasures

I was so pleased that my fairy toadstool brooches sold so well that I decided to try making something else using Tibetan silver charms. As is usual for me, the idea of making an apple tree came to mind in the dead of night (I wonder why this is!?), and as I had a few pussy cat charms left over, thought one of these would sit very nicely under the branches.

I hope you like it. I have to say, the cat's expression is rather sweet - I think he's actually a bit worried about the possibility of one of those apples falling on his bottom!

The best ideas always come in the dead of night! Ithink it's because our brains have time to file a few things away and relax a bit, letting all the good stuff bubble up.

That cat is very cute!
