These are a few new foldform cuffs I've made recently. Two styles of ruffle and a thin 1" wide synclastic design. Cuffs are really satisfying to make. It's a chance to pound out a pretty substantial sized piece of copper so to me, it borders on sculpture... which is a place I'd like to go with this at some point.
I'm really curious about your reactions to the ruffling. Do you prefer the tighter ruffle or the loose wavy one? Comments appreciated!!!
And as for baby pics, here is the little guy keeping me busy three days a week -- my grandson. He's taking me off task for sure, but how can I complain? Yeah I'm partial but isn't he adorable?
It takes all my willpower not to splash him all over my blog every week, but these recent photos are just too darn cute to pass up.
Don't you just want to pinch that chubby cheek?
Thanks for stopping by and see you next week... :-)
Do you want to learn foldforming from Charles Lewton-Brain, its inventor? You can!! He will be at Center for Metal Arts Aug 3-6. I'll be there again this year... why not you too? Click here for the invitation or leave me a comment and I'll hook you up. Still not sure? This video will give you a little taste... http://youtu.be/_0Noad96KsI ***And here's a new development -- for a special discount, say that Sue Lacy sent you!

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.
