what I'm working on
Trying out something new. When I made the resin windows for my rocket ship last week I poured a few extra domes and filled them with tiny pieces of street signs. These are itty bitty little disks that have been punched out of larger pieces where I make my rivet connections. I save all my scraps in hopes of coming up with a new piece that I can incorporate them into.
Tonight I went down to the studio and cut the copper piece that will house the dome and got it mostly soldered. Almost never get a bezel soldered all the way in one shot. The evenings sure fly by quickly, I could've stayed down there a lot longer tonight.
I think my favorite part of this pendant is the back. I love how you will be able to see into the dome from the backside!
I also got a bit more done on this bird necklace for my friend Tammy. It's going to be quite lovely all in black, white, and grey.
