Repurposed shot glass























I spotted this hand blown shot glass in Habitat and thought I've got the perfect new life for it! This pic shows work in progress transforming it into a miniature lichen landscape pincushion.
mmm, yes...I do have time on my hands!

My idea of bliss though, making miniature worlds. These will be available in my Etsy shop 'elinart' next weekend.

Thank you! I've made a version with British soldier lichen.....guaranteed to raise a smile. If not, I recommend resorting to tequila :)

Agreed. This is great! But, of course all your stuff is! :)

this piece is gorgeous! i love your skills, creativity, and use of color; especially your unusual subject matter. i can't ever look at mold or lichen the same way, i catch myself noticing the colorful details and texture now.
