Peach Medallions

On my Santa list was a rolling mill...let's face it, a rolling mill has been on my list for a while.  Unfortunately, Santa has not been in the position to gift this hefty (weight and price) machine yet.

This year, though, he and I settled on a compromise...a Sizzix Big Shot!  I found it on sale at Amazon and told him if he wasn't going to add it to my Christmas list, I was going to get it for my mysteriously ended up under the tree!  It didn't come with any embossing folders or dies, so I ventured out to Michael's and found a couple to get my feet wet with.  I think I like it!!

My first attempt!...embossed copper medallions, embellished with antiqued peachy Czech glass beads from ArteBella Surplus, sterling and copper earwires.

Here's a pretty peach grouping from they would be great with!  Add your favorite comfortable jeans and boots and you are good to go...perfect for that transition from winter to spring!



  1. Nice work. Now I have to see what a Sizzix Big Shot is!

  2. I love what you've done with the embossing. It's fun, isn't it? Your earwires are absolutely gorgeous, too.

  3. Oh....I LOVE these Melissa!!! Glad Santa fulfilled your wish!

  4. Lovely earrings! i got myself a Sizzix Big Kick o Black Friday, sooo much fun. Now I just need to take pics of my pieces, lol.

  5. It is a cool tool. I have one and don't use it enough. But I like that quickness of it. I did a tutorial on my blog awhile ago of using that to make faux enamel. Did it with a girl scout group of 40. Very fun. Enjoy the day! Erin
