I realized last night that I have not posted any of the metalwork I have made since January 2010.  So here is some stuff from the winter of 2010.

Here are some earrings


These are necklace center pieces a lady contracted me to make for her.  They were not all successes but they are good examples of the technique.

Awesome!  At first I thought they were embossed and thought oh wow that would be very hard to do.  But still awesome.


My favorites are all your different hearts.

my favorite was the pink heart because the it is the exposed copper in the brass.
