Does my gecko look OK?

I made another magnetic brooch last evening and was going to show you today - but!!!!   Guess what?  I've lost it!!  Well, not so much lost as I had it before coming upstairs to bed but I can't find it now!!!  So today's post will be about something else!!

It's the smallest things that are often the hardest!!!!  Oh, that's life in general, though!!!!   Looking after the smallest people in our lives is hard too.  Here are some of mine!!!

Not sure if this really does look gecko ish enough yet so thought I'd show you!!!!  When you're working on tiddly bits it's SO hard to get the right shape and expressions into them.  Anyway, I leave you with this and this and this!!!  Oh, better explain!  There's a swan, an angel and a turtle!!!!

I think the next turtle will have to be a tad larger in the body but I really like him.  

OK, off to play 'hunt the brooch' now!!!

Such cute critters! I especially like the swan and the turtle.

zomg that's an adorable sea turtle! We have plenty of geckos around here, and they tend to be a little bigger 'round the middle (think the opposite of hour-glass), as opposed to lizards which are more streamlined/straight-bodied.

Critters all look great. Amazing how you can take just a couple of rings and chains and make the cutest little critters. The swan is so sweet and I really like the turtle, he reminds me of the turtle named Crush from the animated movie "Finding Nemo". :)

Hi I can't do these things yet so it is hard to criticize those who attempt and do. The gecko I think his eyes are to far apart. I am in USA and we see a commercial all the time with a gecko and his eyes are closer. All the others are very pretty.
