There is a little bit of a sad story behind this project, in that it was made for the recent FOC swap and as yet is still Missing in action Sad SO you all have to cross you fingers and hope it gets found.
Anyhooooo
So this was a wet felted bowl formed around a polysterene mold. Then when dry I cut into it and set some pieces of sea glass.
Inside is a simple glass jar which can hold a tea light.
I do so hope you enjoy it and lets all hope it gets to New Zealand in the end !

how lovely!
I wonder if customs held onto it.... I know New Zealand is touchy about what it lets enter it's borders...
I hope it finds it's way to your swap partner.

Yes I read their full "yes and no's" before hand though and there was nothing in there that they wouldn't have liked

bummer... I hope it just fell off a trolly somewhere, and has been discovered and does show up.  It's a lovely item.

I bet some post office fiend stole it because it was so awesome. Yeah, that's totally it.

Great idea for a votive!

I've heard of packages taking upwards of 6 months to reach NZ, so hopefully it turns up!
