New earrings – swirly hardware and a lightly dished bright copper disc with a hammered texture. Elegant, lightweight, shimmery and eye-catching.
Prototyping a new pair of earrings – swirly hardware and a lightly dished bright copper disc with a hammered texture. I’m delighted with how elegant, shimmery and eye-catching these turned out. I also feel my soldering has improved a great deal – not to mention that it’s great to have a second torch when you’re working on something just a little to big for one to handle alone. Unfortunately my camera’s away for repairs, so here are some dodgy phone pictures.
Test piece for a commission – using plaster of paris to hold intricate structures together for soldering, and making a twist-brooch for the first time. I think it would look better with two more barnacles of different sizes.
