Subdued mouse
with malachite shard

This mouse is a little subdued in its colour scheme for my taste, but I do really think the striped green shard is cool. I made a few striped shards of this type (mostly by accident) but this one has the most striking contrast.

Like all the mice in this series, these are made with mixed basemetal findings (though top-quality 49 strand 024 cable); the wire wrapped purple bead was also made by someone else, but I was happy to incorporate it as a ‘joint’ for the piece:) As always, I enjoy making do with bits and bobs that serve both as a constraint & take the pressure off so they'll be “fun”.
