I recently completed the last of these three name plates; made using wood pieces as pictured above. You may recall these from last year's 'Make Five' project. Bill had them in a box of stuff in his workshop, so I've been putting them to use!
1. Back side of name plate for Jami. It's difficult to see, but the little gate swings open to reveal a bunny rabbit. Jami has an adorable bunny named 'Chloe', which explains the theme here.
Stare at the plaque for a few seconds, and you'll see the platinum-colored rabbit.
Materials used: vitreous tile, stained glass, glass gems, brooch, & ball chain .
Materials used: micro-mosaic tiles, pink stained glass, agate slices and Scrabble letters.
2. Lisa's name plate. Lisa likes blue, and had requested the irridescent glass, because she liked the look of it. (Made using irridescent stained glass, large glass gem, bling, and letters made from shells.
Back side also includes decorative tile).
3. Jeff is a train enthusiast, & has a Harley, so these are featured in his name plate. His name is written in the smoke from the locomotive.
Materials are vitreous glass, stained glass and small black beads.
In addition to glass tiles, back side includes wooden letters, a motorcycle, and tiny mille flowers.
I currently have two works-in-progress, so hope to be able to post the completed pieces soon.
