We cut pieces of metal in the shapes we wanted to use. I love triangles so I cut my favorite piece, the textured and vertigris center, into a triangle and then got the idea to make a wavy edge on one side. It gave it such movement that I was really pleased with it. I chose a steampunk embossed metal piece and a plain piece of copper sheet that I used a great dimpling tool on for the other pieces. I had to use some of the anodized aluminium because of the colors. I know I'll be working with that material again. I chose several embellishments from Jean's supply and started layering. This class had every technique I like to use in all my work, layering, color, texture! No wonder I loved it!!! I ended up with a very wearable, very me necklace that I just love.
Since I can be something of an overachiever, I've come to like making my own chains or necklace for my jewelry. Jean taught us a new, to me, coiled neckwire and a new, to me, clasp. They look like this.
|This clasp is really cool, I think.|
