Did I mention that I have been taking a intro jewelry and metalsmithing class....Since January ?
I feel like such a newbie, and I did not want to post any of my work, however
when I saw Ambika's on Into the Fray, I decided to share
We have only done 5 projects so far..
These pictures were taken by our instructor and posted on flickr.
The first was a mobile
I did not realize how morbid mine was until I saw it alongside everyone elses...
The requirement was 6 cut silhouettes, it was our intro to cutting, drilling, texturing and darkening.
The second was a pin !
I love pins ! We had to use a found piece of 2-d material, I used a hang tag from a sweatshirt from my alma mater, he/she is a zen banana slug ! This project introduced soldering, working with acrylic and cold connections.
I was not going for an insect theme the rest of my pieces are bug free I promise. Each one of my projects seems completely different to me, but during our critiques someone always seems to find a theme.
I am really happy with the way my last three pieces came out, I will post pictures when they become available.
