What a beautiful day outside! I got out for a little while, then of course had to focus on nature themes in the studio. I've taken a big crazy left turn with my jewelry style these past couple days while I experiment with fold forming. I think it's just plain fascinating.
This bean pod pendant is made from copper sheet metal and freshwater pearls, with a sterling silver bale. The incredible red patina comes from heat.
Believe it or not, the photo below is a before and after shot. The small piece of copper sheet metal on the left is identical to the piece I used to make the pod. Isn't that wild?
I can see how this pendant might not be for everyone ;-) You'll probably see a few other crazy pieces while I experiment with the technique. I hope you'll stop back anyway!
Note: If you'd like to enter the One-a-day Giveaway, just post a comment on any One-a-day blog post during March, and tell me what you think of a piece and why. Read all about it here.
