1  Earth photo frame in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by illegalcreativity on: November 12, 2013 09:58:34 PM
~hello~
i mostly post around the jewelry section because i'm actually a jewelry design major
but i wanted to switch it up a little and made a photo frame as one of my projects instead

assignment: domed marriage of metal lentils







it ended up in the showcase [that generally represents the works of my major in the school] smack dab in the middle at eye level ~~~

to see how it was made:
click !
it goes from most recent to oldest though, so you'd have to scroll to the very bottom :x ~


let me know what you think ? Smiley

4  Earth x Saturn earrings in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by illegalcreativity on: December 29, 2012 10:01:14 AM


made for my midterm project ^^ .. but haven't had time to take pictures T__T ..






I used the disc cutter for (4) perfect circles, and then the dapping block (several times) to make domes for a sphere ~
for earth, I first did a practice piece in brass, then moved into silver (drawing the continents on, then cutting them all out and soldering the 2 pieces together)

for saturn, I had no design idea and had 3 domes ready to cut out and didn't like any of them T_T so they were all thrown out, and I ended up with this simple idea ~ the orb is cut out of silver and big enough to come out of the socket, but too small to fall out entirely


dapping is a tedious process, but i think it's really fun ~


[for rough size estimates]

5  planet earring in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by illegalcreativity on: October 20, 2012 10:57:54 AM

I rolled out thick sheets of (brass&nickel*) metal into really thin pieces, sawed out circles (and an orb)-- formed the circles into half spheres on the dapping block and soldered everything together

what a PAIN! haha ~ because i like using the same type solder for entire projects, so pieces kept falling off, and when i finally finished and polished it, the ear post fell off .. so i had to resolder and repolish everything -__-!

you can kinda see the joints from the bottom view (my mom thought it was a solid ball);


 Cheesy



*this was a practice piece (to get used to the dapping block and as a prototype), I want to make one in silver in the future ~
