Or metalworking…Cold, slightly rainy days, so inspirational. Surround yourself with the things and people that inspire you and spread light in your life. via
Back to metalworking: I am working on several jewelry pieces. Yesterday I enameled a necklace/earring set, a pair of earrings, and two other necklace pendants. Today I want to get some things to solder mainly because I need to practice some more. At first I fell in love with enamel and now I’m loving straight metal now. After being introduced to electric tools, such as the belt sander and the buffing wheels, I began to feel much more open to metal working. Also, a note on texture: hammering is so lovely and adds such a simple, elegant look to a piece. Sand blasting is the next best thing (in the context of metals), especially when it uses silicone (finer texture) as well as sand.
