So I got tired of working on the big vessel thingy that I’ve been trying to finish and decided to work on another, faster project right now. This one is a medallion type pendant that is… inspired by this year’s super bowl, Ebb & Flow. You knew I was going to say that didn’t you?
I had this design sitting around just waiting for me to get cracking on it, so I made an executive decision to work on something faster for now. It’s just what I’m in the mood for. The vessel will still get finished, just not right this second.
So I transcribed the design to paper patterns and then onto the copper and silver sheet. Each piece was cut out, the silver one was pierced, and then they were both filed. I then drew the pattern to cut the copper piece to fit the silver piece and cut and filed that bad boy also.
Next I’m going to texture the background of the copper piece and then both will be riveted together. That long piece jutting out from the copper will be the bail. I haven’t decided yet what sort of collar to put it on yet. I also haven’t decided whether to form the pieces a little or leave them flat. We’ll see what happens.
