jewelry making introduction...

my second project
for intro to jewelry making
was an attempted mobius
out of silver
which was way out of my price range

so i decided to try
12 gauge aluminum instead
after hammering away for many hours
i decided to switch things up
and due to the limited time span
i did a simple twist
hammered texture on the outside
wire mesh texture on the inside

not perfect
but a good beginning

my first project
was a pair of 22 gauge copper earrings
special chunghi choo patina
gives them the beautiful
blue and black
they are my "virgin piece"

these are a few extra bits and pieces
that i made in the mean time
i loved to play with
heat coloring copper

there will definitely be more pieces
to come...


  1. I Must Have A Pair of These Earrings. Especially the pokey, weapon-like ones. Must. :)

  2. that could be arranged...i do plan to make more in the future
