I really have this sea/water theme stuck in my head. I already know what I want to do for the next match-book so hopefully inspiration doesn't leave me high and dry.

Thankfully I have even had a few ideas for match-books with other themes, but for now I've got a fever and the only cure is more "sea-escapes".

I'm quite pleased with my vacations in tiny boxes. It was quite tedious to make the tiny little anchor and chain and I wasn't sure how sturdy it would be but, it seems to be holding up just fine.

Here are the two newest lockets. This is not a mirror trick, one is a lefty and the other a righty; not to mention they are different in subtle ways.

I really have to start making the chains for these lockets, but I enjoy making the lockets so much that the chains have been put on the back burner for now. I will get them done though I promise.

Here are the first two match-books laid out together I feel that they compliment and balance each other quite well, I cant wait and see how the collection grows. I guess that does it for now, I hope you enjoyed the recent work. I'll be back soon.
Peace and Love.
