Copper Bangle

I made this Copper Bangle this evening as an experiment. I used a combination of line and T folds to texture the metal and then Liver of Sulphur to add a patina. I am very pleased with the results so hopefully I will have some for sale before to long.

Fold Formed Brass Flower

Fold formed Brass Flower
I was playing around with some Fold forming techniques last night and made this brass flower. I am using these techniques in some silverwork/Jewellery I am designing at the moment, it is cheaper to practice in brass. I am also working in copper which also allows me to combine Foldforms with enamel, hopefully I will have some designs on here before long.

I also plan to use these techniques to make some large sculptures for the garden, but I will need to scale things up a bit for that.

Busy weekend

I spent most of the weekend in the Studio working on a new range of jewellery based on natural shapes, getting it ready to send off to be assayed and hallmarked. I t should be back in a couple of weeks when I will put it on the site, so watch this space. I am really excited about it, I think it is some of my best work to date

The next major job is to get every thing ready for the Ely Art Society summer exhibition which runs from 5th August. Everything needs framing or in the case of the cards.. printing!
Hopefully it will all be ready on time.
