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 ~

Simply stunning!  You have mad metalsmithing skills.  : )  Are there any other planets destined to become beautiful baubles in your near future?

These are beautiful. I'm really impressed with the continent cutouts on the Earth. Looks like it was probably squinty work.

^Thank you!
although the hardest part was probably trying to draw the continents onto a round surface accurately :s
