  22. Its adorable! I really think its a girl, look at her face! She must be 3-4 years old. She doesn't look malicious, she looks absolutely cute! She remindes me of my youngest daughter, who is also 4 year...

  30. The technique looks very similar to balinese wirework. They often use wire and little silver dots that they attach to a silver object. I posted my silver bola some time ago, which is a good example.

  32. Hey Val, these were definately made in Congo. Congo used to be a province of Belgium so lots of people lived there and got back to Belgium when Congo got independent. I put these on all the time. Wood...
  33. Hey Val...Yes, we dont have freedom of speech where I live. Well, at least everybody knows that here ;-) I m not sure why only 20yr old boys were nice to you in Hungary. I think the other people idee...
  34. I had no idea it was Remembrance day...I have never really heard of it I must confess. Here in Europe the horrible past is still very much alive every day. Btw, its a great locket!
  35. breaking that is... Val, yes, but I would really REALLY love to have a bakelite clamper! :-) I wouldn't drill, I would glue it. I have a cheap ass fakelite 'made in china' sort of clamper with the ...
