Petal the donkey

I've been trying a few new techniques and practicing some others that I haven't used much.  The result was Petal the Donkey.

This was my first attempt at engraving - just some lines for the mane, mouth, nose, tail etc (doesn't show up much in the photo I'm afraid  - it probably needs a bit of patina). I used a Dremel engraver and it was pretty easy.  Also engraved my initials on the back. I also made my own pin findings and a few other techniques that were good to practice.

Hope you like Petal.  A simple but happy little donkey.
