Special tree ornament...the love of making tiny things

My dollhouse Christmas tree is almost ready . I am also working with my roombox. I wish I had more time to take pictures but honestly I do my best because time is all that counts for me. I am making *gazillions* of things at the same time but once in while I take my time, because I enjoy so much, and work on something slowly wondering how it will look like at the end.
This is my top of tree ornament. It is a replica of a Irish ornament. The top is brass that ,using a press saw , created a the *loops. the ball is a wood bead with 3 holes. The ball has 100% Australian gold that comes in a sheet. It is 99.9% pure gold. Then 3 holes and each one a *real* vintage swaroviski diamond, not the the ones we see on eBay . I removed this from an antique piece that was no longer good for me.
Now, I sure hope I will get all done before Christmas so I Can show you my first room box. I have made changes and changes, that is normal to me, but all was very worth it.
I don't think I will have furniture ready but the the room will have a Christmas tree and few little things.
It is raining today ...I love this weather because is cold enough for my fire place to be on all day , plus a big pot of soup is almost done as I have 8 children to feed soon.......smiling and happy!

Oh my dear friend, again, pure magic from your lovely hands. I don't care if you don't have any furniture yet, I just want to see that Christmas tree and all the other little wonders you have ready to show us! How do you do this? My fingers have become more glumsy with age....the detail and the precision with which you do this is again, miraculous. How how I enjoy your mind and creativity!!! MERCI MA CHÈRE! Bisous, Anita
