I managed to get studio time in on Friday. I hammered a pillow shape that I had suspended using pitch, but didn’t use
the pitch while chasing. I chased over air instead. I wanted to see how this technique would work out on a larger form. (It’s the same technique I used in my fold formed brass/nickel collar that looks biological.) I really like the way it turned out, especially on the underside. Too bad there’s not really a market any longer for ashtrays, it’s the perfect shape and size. Plus I don’t want it to be all dirty and ashy anyway. Do you think it’s too big for a pendant?
. . . . . . . I also decided (finally!) on how to suspend my “medal” pendant. The final design makes it look less medally, but I still like the way the pieces work together. I need to darken the copper collar to match the disk though.
I’m not sure what I want to work on the next time I have a studio day. Maybe a couple of more cuffs for Cuffmas. I better figure it out soon though!
