TY Cat, I have some other stuff up here and a lot more on Facebook (Techitoes Design).  Bad me, I've been way more occupied making > posting.

Through my project of putting artists' images on to metal to make jewelry, I stumbled in to a whole new thing--Christmas ornaments.  I ended up getting swamped with orders and silly goose that I am, failed to take pics of all but a couple.  Here they are in all their poorly photographed glory:

Pretty solid for a first go-sure you haven't done this in a previous incarnation?  Your painting must be incredible--have it posted anywhere?

How did you cut the steel?  The necklace is beyond amazing.

Awesome work!  How did you cut the little ship out?  I make a lot of copper metal pendants, I smooth the edges with a dremel 120 grit flap sanding wheel shoved into a power screwdriver.  Not sure if it could get into the inside edges of your work though.  A dremel steel wire cup brush mebbe?

That was a good tutorial you linked to.  Your pieces are lovely.  When I do my etchings I laser print the images onto slick paper (think cheap ads you get in the mail, avoid black print if possible) and transfer them with a regular iron.  High setting, no steam.  Press without moving the iron for about 2 min.  Remove iron, burnish (I use the back of a spoon).  Replace iron for another minute, then after lifting iron peel off the paper while it's still warm.  I don't etch with ferric chloride, I use a 50/50 mix of muratic acid and Hydrogen Peroxide.  All this was trial & error.  If you have any questions shoot me a message.
