Back to an organic look today. It's a copper foldform chased-on-air pendant with sterling silver accents made from my silver scrap. It's a big piece, just over 1.5 wide x 2.5" long.
I think it looks like something one might find on an archaeological dig :-)
Way back on Day 5, Larry posted, "...show us your tool set... Tools are cool." I finally got around to snapping some photos around the studio, for the most part carefully avoiding the mess I've been making lately. So here are some of the more well-used tools, starting with the microfold brake (corrugator) I've been in a tizzy about... There are so many more tools on my wish list!

I love the organic look of your pendant. Very cool.
Thanks, Lelie! This is it but most things go on sale periodically: http://www.harborfreight.com/8-inch-bench-top-shear-brake-90757.html

Nice collection of tools! Are you happy with your rolling mill? Thats one tool on my wish list, but it's so hard to decide which features, size, brand to pursue.
Am I happy with my rolling mill? Yes and no. Realistically, budget drove my decision. I would suggest getting the biggest, most expensive rolling mill you can afford. I often wish the main rollers were longer and I really don't use the wire area, at least not at this point. Also more expensive well-calibrated mills will keep your metal perfectly straight as it goes through. Mine develops a bit of a curve so I flip the metal over each time and deal with it. But yes I do love having it.
