I'm really charged about today's piece because I thought of something new last night, and it worked out. This is a 10 gauge copper wire that is hand-sawed down the middle lengthwise on both ends. That allowed a double curl at the bottom and a bale (rounded, fit together, then soldered) at the top.
It really has never occurred to me to do that with a wire. It opens up some interesting design possibilities.
Anyway, this pendant is copper with garnet wrapped in sterling silver. I hope you like it!
This month I began to use corrugation and combined it with foldforming, improved my soldering, stone setting, and sawing skills, created a new variation of my Tree of Life, sawed wire lengthwise ;-) and created a month's worth of new designs.
This is a quick video recap -- just 2 minutes long. If you enjoyed the One-a-day challenge, I hope you will "like" and share the video with your friends and like my facebook page. Every little bit helps :-)
If you haven't entered the drawing yet, you still have until midnight U.S. ET. In fact to make it easy, I'll count any entries that come in before I wake up tomorrow morning. No sense having to calculate time zones on my first day off. And I will post a drawing winner sometime tomorrow, April 1, no fooling.
