I didn't realize playing with fire would be so fun funny enough i have an art studio at home and hoping to add jewelry to the mix later this year
Nice work! Pierced work like that is difficult, so my hat's off to you!
Yeah this project was a lesson in sawing....i also saw some cool coin cutout exercises which I'm going to try. I've heard gold is lovely to work with, need to learn some skills first so I don't make too many expensive mistakes!Nice work! Pierced work like that is difficult, so my hat's off to you!
And gold? Ha ha! Once you start with gold you'll never want to go back to anything else. Although a friend who is a silversmith, tells me that Argentium, which I've never worked with, is much like gold in its ease of workability, and better than plain old sterling in just about every way. But if fine silver is persnickety and prone to melt in an instant, high karat gold is all mellow like, "What? You need me to fuse? Hey, no problem...I'll just ease into that for you" (slowly and beautifully fuses). (I love being able to fuse stuff since you bypass all the solder headaches. I'm lazy.)
