As promised here are the pictures of the new series of pendants I've been working on . So far I only have two and 1/2 finished . Half you say ? Well one is still awaiting two more rivets and then it too will be finished .
This is the first one I made . It was originally going to be a broach and I was going to fold a tin backing to it. That failed and so I was left with this little tin collage . After digging through my findings stash I found the bezels I picked up at Ornamentea ,they were perfect !
The second one is my favorite ! I think it's the teeny tiny couple ! They were a bit of a challenge to saw out . The rivets are a combination of steel wire and brass escutcheon pins.
My plan is to eventually make my own boxes . Once Ryan and i build the hydraulic press ,I'm going to experiment with shapes and dies .
I really can't wait. I fell in love with the press at penland ,there are just so many things I want to make !
