71  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Black Things: Orchids, Peonies, and Hearts on: November 28, 2007 11:50:48 PM
Here are a variety of my cuff bracelets with one thing in common: Black.

This one I made for my jewelry class, it's a copper orchid patina'd black, riveted (sterling silver rivet) to a brass cuff bracelet that I designed, pierced, and gave a rather scuffy satin polish (scuffy from being shipped back to me now that school's out. Oy!)  This was probably my best or second best project from jewelry class. The very best one will come in a later post since I haven't gotten pictures of it yet.

Here's a black version of the brass heart cuff I posted before.  Copper with a dark liver of sulfur patina.

And this one I just finished today! It's a black Peony bracelet that I'm also going to be making a silver and brass version of.  I'm almost done with the silver one (just need to file, finish and form) and I'll post pictures of that with my next group post, which, coincidentally, will be silver pieces.

If you have any questions about metalworking, feel free to ask and I'll help any way I can :3 I'll be posting a small tutorial on cuff bracelets soon, but it involves some expensive specialized equipment, so I dunno if anyone will care for it XD;;
72  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / Metal ATC's? on: November 28, 2007 04:26:51 PM
I've gotten rather curious about ATCs after reading about them on this forum and looking at a few different threads.  When it comes to crafts, I'm a jeweler more than anything, so I was going to do a series of ATC's in pierced brass or copper (I prefer brass) with floral designs. I was wondering if this would be plausible or if it would go against the rules of the game, so as to say.

So far, I have designs for a peony card and an orchid card, but I'm open to suggestions of other flowers.  I'm thinking of making somewhere between four and seven cards, depending on how many good designs I can come up with and how much work I have ahead of me.  I'm primarily a comic book artist, and I have a few publishing ventures coming up, plus jewelry commissions, and a part time job in an art gallery.  I'm planning to do the cards in between all these things, and before the start of the new college semester.

I was also wondering if you can trade more than one card for another, because these cards are going to be pretty demanding, weighty, and special (although I'm sure everyone feels that way about their creations).

Thanks for your help in advance!
