Copper and Ocean Jasper Statement Necklace

by Diana Stiles. (Amherst, MA) I hand cut thin copper tubing into small spacers and forged heavy copper pipe, applying a natural fume patina of turquoise and brown speckle. Likewise, I used my home made patina on copper washers; using two washers and a toggle clasp allows the necklace to be worn in two lengths. […]

Autumn Leaves in Metal and Chainmaille

by Elizabeth Reid. (Rockville, MD) I cut the leaves out of copper as well as the acorn. I then did some forming and texturing and colored using some alcohol inks and liver of sulfur. I made the chainmaille necklace and “S” hook. Elizabeth Reid Becoming To You

The forming comes in steps, anneal, form with hammers, etc, anneal again for more forming. When I was satisfied with the forming, […]

Bling Your Glass Pendant

by Kim Pernia. (Maryland) I finally accomplished silversmithing that I am proud of. The torch work is acceptable, even the little silver flower over the glass stone. The work with the dremel took even longer than the torch work. I’m self-taught so I’m really proud. Kim Pernia Kimmings Jewelry

“Emerge” Necklace

by Janice Root. (Orange City, FL) I love melting silver onto copper and using my torch to form the liquefied silver into various hills and valleys. For this necklace, I punched a round copper disc using my disc cutter and then heaped and melted small scraps of silver onto it. I looked at the finished […]
