A sweet mice and dragonfly ornament composed on an old key.
These two cuties are made from embossed copper sheet with a pretty china ear, they have twisted brass tails and whiskers with a mother of pearl button detail. Then finished in crystalline verdigris and mounted on a vintage iron key with a dragon fly charm and handmade porcelain flower. They are 70mm from top to bottom.
“Whilst digging my garden I found old bits of china in the soil, they were like pieces of buried treasure to me. So I started making these little beasties with them using some scraps of copper from my husband’s workshop. Now I search around antique and vintage shops looking for chipped teacups and lonely saucers to supplement my garden finds.”
