I thought I'd post some photos of some work I did this weekend while cleaning up the studio. I decided to play with copper and pewter together.
I made this necklace, I really like it.
I used some copper and etched the words "PARIS 15 JUL" on it, then rounded it in the dapping block.
It looks very old and worn. Combined with a dark pewter Eiffel Tower, it starts to have a story of its own.
There were balloon races over the skyline of Paris in the old days, the clear faceted lucite bead reminds me of an airy balloon high in the sky, very light and fun.
The costume pearls were just dyed this weekend, they're a nice light gray color, they have a worn and vintage look to them that goes well with the aged feeling of this piece.
I'm pleased with the way it turned out, I think I need to test wear it though, just to be sure!
It's the least I can do...
