A few posts ago I showed a picture of the copper thingy we were making in the edelsmeden class on Wednesday nights. Well, here’s the finished item!
It only took about 7 hours of work. 🙂 You can’t tell in the photo how shiny it really it, but trust me, it’s been polished to a burnished shine! I even wore it to work the next day attached to a kind of gold colored thin sweater. How is it attached? We cut small round pieces of plastic, just bigger than the hole in the middle of the copper thingy (what DO I call it, anyway?). You put the plastic circle on the inside of your fabric and push it through the hole of the metal. Voila! It stays in place very well.
At the end of the evening we started on a new project – a silver ring! Oh boy. Before the next class I have to come up with a nice design to cut into the silver to make relief. I’m thinking a Maori pattern of some kind….
