old jewellery

alt=""id="BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5308964280428214226" />






This is the last thing i made at uni. Its a broach and it was based on a puffer fish! the black spherical ball was hollow and cut in half then the top half cut into quarters. On the inside edge of each quarter, i set magnetic strips to hold them shut. Inside the ball was large red balloon attached to a valve built into the broach back. out of the back of the broach came a clear tube which had a pressurized air canister on the other end, which could be clipped to the back out of sight. at the press of a button it went from a small unassuming ball to a large red balloon which if fully inflated could reach the size of the model.

  2. This was by far one of mthe most thought provoking merry go rounds we've had. Im still not convinced I am all done thingking it through.
    I think the amount of detail and the stricking color combinations you use are your trademark. Unique style that sets you apart.
