I posted some little silver people on swings earrings last year, and said I'd post the next lot of people when I'd finished... Here they are. They are made of sterling wire, which is only 1mm wide. There's about 40 tiny soldered joins - which would normally do my head in, but when I made this it was actually fun!



Also, recently I was given a rolling mill on long term long. If a nice new mill is a porsche, this is a 1960s mini with bits falling off Undecided. Still, it seems to do the trick, more or less, and lets me print nifty things on metal. Like leaves...



And the lace from an underpants factory my Grandma worked in in the 1950s. After I printed with the lace I tucked it into the back of the pendant. This is the third one of these I've made. (All slightly different.) My mum and my friend each got one for xmas.





I'm also messing about with printing hair. Will post some of those later... Wink

Awesome. I love the little stick people. I'm surprised that didn't do your head in, it would do mine in! Hehe.
I love the texture on the leaf as well. You did a great job.

This is quite unbelievably stunning!  Amazing job.  I love it (the people pendant, that is).  The others are awesome too.  Thanks for sharing your pics.

Thanks, guys... Will sure be producing more little people - but you really have to be in the right mood - or their tiny little arms and legs get shrivelled and wrinkly... Mmmm.

I too like the swings more, but for the rolling mill, nice stuff! Does the leaf have a tall edge from the bezel around it, or is it like the lace one? It looks deeper, so I'm just wondering. And I love the shape on the lace one! It's such a neat idea, too. Without going into lots of metalsmithing detail that'll go way over my head, how do you make a shape like that without having a join? Or is the join just hidden really really well? Well, keep on rockin', and I can't wait to see your new stuff!
