Sterling silver stacking rings, they were Amelia's idea! I hand cut the hearts from sterling sheet and hammered sterling wire for the rings, soldered them together, oxidized, and voila!

These are great! Where do you get the sheet metal? And why do you have to oxidize it?

Sorry for all the questions...but I LOVE metal art!

I get my metals from Rio, depending where you live you may have a local supply shop, but I don't. I think the most frequently mentioned other shop I'm aware of online is monsterslayer.com, but I've never bought from them.
 They're oxidized to blacken the letters, I use liver of sulfur, but you can put your metal in a plastic bag with an egg, as far as less toxic versions go, or using what may be on hand.

and Rio requires you open an account, but you don't need a tax ID or anything, just name,email addy etc   Smiley

I shop at Rio as well, but I have also found that www.thunderbirdsupply.com can have some very competitive prices with both Rio and Monster Slayer. Especially when they have their sales. (no account required)
