I started a night class Copper Foil/Leadlight Course. I learnt the basics over an 8 week course, and never completed a project whilst on the course, however since finishing, I have completed this Copper Foil Wind Chime and also my Make Up Brush Holder. I am of New Zealand Maori decent, and one of our traditions is that if we make something, we give the first project away. My work colleague "loaned" me some of her equiptment eg:Soldering Iron, transfers etc, whilst I did the course, so I thought it befitting to give my first complete project to her. This Windchime is it. She liked it.

The US idea of "trimming" etc is awesum, I just love the whole "giving/paying it forward" concept.I have 2 weekends ago, been gifted 4 boxs of excess stained glass off cuts of glass in various colors & textures as the lady that used to do stained glass now enjoys gardening, so in return I went & bought her a variety of flowers, a feijoa tree, some vegetable seeds so she can grow her own, sunflower seeds to make her garden look happy & also a beautiful windchime. People always wish they were rich or are always money orientated, but I think people are alot richer in other ways.....Karma always comes around one way or another. Thank you for sharing :) Namaste

Here in "The States", we of southern US origin...call that "giving away trimmings."
It is said, if you give away seeds or trimmings from your garden or shrubs, yours will always be blessed and flourish.
