Roman Shields

Hello! Looking for inspiration for today's blogpost, I came across these etched copper discs. I've had them for ages, and I can't remember who made them ... But I love the texture of them; they remind me of little shields.
I knew I wanted to add some little Roman glass rondelles (going with the ancient theme), but also wanted an additional focal point.

 Step forward these delicious lampwork headpins by French artist Carol Pons of  Brume de terre. Now Carol makes some fabulous enameled pieces, which are very popular at the moment. But I also love her lampwork glass and copper components -always beautiful.
I tried to match up the colours of the headpins with the Roman glass in my stash.
So there we are...Roman shields... they are listed here
See you in a few weeks
