Hi all, here we are on day 23 of 31 already! Time has been flying. If you've enjoyed this series, I hope you'll "like" my FaceBook page. You can either visit the page directly or stay here and click the little FB box in the right column of this page. I'll use FB to keep friends up to date on shows, sales, new blog series topics, and giveaways.
Today was my first experience with silver and fold forming. The leaves of these earrings are fine silver and ended up bright-white shiny. Way too uniformly shiny for a piece like this. I added a darker patina to get the details to stand out. You can see more about them here.
Thanks to my awesome daughter Lindsay for bringing me a pouch of pretty malachite beads all the way from Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). Malachite is mined in only two places in the world, Mexico and DRC, and two of those pieces are on these earrings :)
GIVEAWAY: 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.

This began as a hobbyist's blog.
Over time it became a quest to support & connect metalsmiths around the globe who use foldforming techniques in their work.
