I love, love, love it: I love how it feels in my hands, I love that you can soften it or harden it - with just a few tools. I love the colours it takes (not so much the brass, my current loves are copper and silver). I love everything about metal!
This week and the following I will share a few of the items I recently made. And I will start with something I never thought I will make: rings!
They are made mostly of copper (the first one is in sterling silver) - with various gemstones. Wire-wrapped, fully adjustable and lovely: what started as a bunch of wire, through careful and loving manipulation ended as a delicate piece of jewelry, ready to adorn your fingers!
|Alika (Of noble kin): sterling silver and amethyst|
|Kai (Ocean): copper & aquamarine jade|
|Keanu (Cool mountain breeze): copper & turquoise dyed howlite|
