Making Progress: a lovely vintage-style painted hair comb

Moving shop was bound to cause a few delays! Wasps caused the first one by building a forever home in the end of my propane torch (I hope they took out fire insurance). After purchasing an unoccupied torch only to have it not work either, my predictions about slews of new pieces are proving inaccurate for a couple of days at least. I do have something to show for myself which I thought I would share. I introduced a recycled pewter dogwood comb a few months ago for spring, and this new version is painted. It would be a lovely statement piece for a vintage wedding or formal tea. 

I enjoy the look of it so much I think I may have to start offering a painted version of all the designs in my shop! Here's to hoping more work will follow by the end of the week.
