Welcome! I'm happy you stopped by. I create hand-made copper jewelry. Join me as I indulge my whims and fancies, chronicling the successes and misadventures of a budding metalsmith.

Year of Jewelry 2011-Week 2

 A loosely related, tongue-in-cheek, take on the "Eclipse" theme.  The hopeless romantic in me believes the Moon is whispering a secret to the Sun. Etching is one of my favorite techniques, but I wanted to do something new this time, so I tried a bench-made tube bail.  I'm pleased with the finer detail in the etching, but I'll be consulting "The Complete Metalsmith" before I attempt another tube.  This one is tear-drop shaped.
