Wow, last day!!! The time has flown by.
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!
March 2012 has been exactly what I'd hoped. I've made new friends and renewed connections. I've received some great feedback from you guys. And I've learned SO much...
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 :-)
Last call for the giveaway!
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.

Over time it became a quest to support & connect metalsmiths around the globe who use foldforming techniques in their work.
