Received a fantastic set of altered corks plus additional goodies from our fearless leader, and I'll be posting pictures tomorrow when I can take some during the day as indoor flash shots are simply not doing them justice.  For now I'll just tease and say that they are wonderfully detailed and the more I look at them the more I like them.

The corks I got from faemystique have given me a bit of swap anxiety: although I spent a lot of time on each of the ones I made (including much trial and error, I'll admit), theyre not nearly as elaborate as the ones I received.  Not only that, faes creations are very much what I wish I had the eye for making.  So Im keeping my fingers crossed she doesn't feel somehow shortchanged in our exchange.

On to the good stuff!  In my package was a mint tin type of container which had been covered with polymer clay inlaid with gears and other metallic objects, and inside of which was a golden drawstring bag that contained the three corks.  In addition, there was a sampler box of berry-infused teas from Alaska (where faemystique lives), some dimensional, steampunkish owl stickers, and a cork gnome.  Heres a group shot (missing from the picture is the gnome which has gone missing somewhere in my living room.):



The corks are fully decorated both front and back with so many wonderful details:







Thank you so much, faemystique!

Those are wonderful, fae! Very elaborate without being too much. All the little charms are my favorite. Smiley

The second one I see there... with the green bead in the middle of the dangle... that has Got to be a bead representing a hot air balloon, with basket below. Am I right? looove that touch and how it truly floats below the cork. All are stunning. Love how they all drape below so gracefully.
