Sparkling apple-iciousness...

This is one of my favorite glitter fairy products. It's a faux apple, glittered and adorned with a velvet leaf , with a hand-forged wire curli-cue. You can stick your favorite picture in it, post the menu for your dinner party or stick a hand written place card into it. Makes a great gift for your guests to take home after dinner, too. I used a combo of gold ultrafine plastic glitter with antique silver glass glitter, over the apple. A bit of the golden apple color is coming thru.

I usually do these in red glitter for teacher gifts. It's a fun twist on the "apple for the teacher". You can make a small color copy of the class picture, and insert it into the curli-cue for your child's favorite teacher. I'll have some up on my etsy store in time for the holidays.

Yours in glitter...
Laurie
