The other day I saw a bib style necklace online and I thought that I wanted to make something like that in my style. I wanted to make it out of brass with three elements like in the one I saw, but it would be larger, more 3D and made out of foldformed sheet.
First I started by folding a large sheet of brass.
Then I cut out the three shapes that will dangle around the wearer’s neck. Initially I thought the bottom piece would be shaped differently than the other two. I didn’t really like it that way, so I cut off the tip and then filed the three pieces up nice. I slightly formed them to get an idea of how they will lie on the wearer.
I still need to make the part that goes behind the neck and then attach everything together. Hopefully this will be done before the PA Guild show next weekend. We’ll see.
I also finished forming that bowl shape I restarted working on last week. The ends curve slightly inward now. Next up, I’ll make some elements that will get riveted onto it, building it up further. This will NOT be ready by next weekend. Bummer, but I won’t rush it.
