Handmade Embellishments

I just wanted to share some embellishments I made from a Chimay bottle cork. I used a ceramic knife to slice it and a razor to shape each piece. Smoothing and final detail shaping was done with sandpaper. For the painted designs, Silk acrylic glazes were perfect, and the last two shots show how well the cork texture works with their shimmer.

I’m sending a somewhat special letter that will be late but bursting with cheer and lovely little details like these. ❤
