The Search for the Perfect Bun

I really love bunnies. In fact, I'm pretty much a bunny freak. (Anybody remember etsy's Bunny Lovers Gift Guide?) Anyway, I've been wanting to use a bunny design in my jewelry for forever. But I didn't want it to look generic or "clipart-ey". So I posted a call for bunny silhouettes over on my favourite Flickr group, Bunny Lovers Unite. And I found this image of an adorable bunny named Cadence.

With the owner's permission I turned the photo into a template.

Then I added a tail and sawed a practice piece out of sheet copper. Cute, huh? :)
