Here's what I'm working on at the Metal-smithing shop:
1) My locket-
The tree will be the lid and the square piece with the bezel will go behind it. I still have a ton of work to finish my locket:
I have to solder on the hinge, put on stars, patina the back and put it all together...
2) My leaves-
These brass leaves will go on my bird necklace... I'm really hoping to have this done on Thursday, so that I can post my completed necklace. I want to be completely done with this project so bad! It feels like I've been working on it forever. When it's probably only a month... I need to sand these, and continue work on shaping them. I love the wonderful brass/gold tones of the leaves reflected in the necklace. However, the brass has been a pain to work with- so difficult to form, and difficult to match.
And so it goes.
