Neckpieces and tarts

Late Bronze Age gold neckpieces from the National Archaeological Museum (MNA) in Lisbon, Portugal.

I visited this museum a couple of years ago and was inspired by the amazing jewellery collection held there. Sometimes seeing work like this makes my hands itch, because I want to start making something.

I was also greatly inspired by the Portuguese tarts in Belem down the road. I think that I spent more time there than at the museum.
