I Eat Art
« on: January 20, 2006 03:52:26 PM »

i went on a big "interactive art" kick last semester, which used a lot of magnets to make jewelry you could "play with." I made two rings (as sort of a mini-series) out of silver which had magnets you could reposition on them. The first one the magnets are just left uncovered, the second one I put them inside of short bits of silver tubing and then capped the tubes with resin (I do a LOT of work with resin).



If anyone is into metalsmithing and has questions about how they're constructed I'd be happy to explain! But I can't really give a "tutorial" per se... hard to compress 6 years of metalsmithing into one craftster post ;-)
