Hi Everyone,
I had my first try with Deluxe attempting to create something ornamental as a learning exercise, obviously not in the same league as most on the forum but I have to start somewhere.

I have never tried anything like this before so all suggestions are very welcome, even the bad ones :)

Well, it looks very nice to me.
Perhaps you might consider some background contrast?

That's a very pretty whatever-it-is, Willeng. I agree with Tim's suggestion. And you might consider drawing a tabletop, or something else, to set it on.

Look really good to me, I like the colours and reflections you've got going on.

Hi Everyone,

Thanks for the comments!
Yes, very good suggestions with a background contrast or a table top or something to set it on, didn't think of that at the time?

I had a chuckle at your comment " whatever-it-is" haha!
I actually enjoyed designing something outside the box so to speak as I have spent my life designing & drafting (manually) & building hundreds of peoples day to day boring items from engines to waterfall features & beyond, some not so boring though.
It was a pleasure to step outside the box & try to be creative with my feeble brain?

I have much to learn about this, by looking at the fantastic work by others I have come to the right place to learn at least.

Thanks guys, back to work.
