Make One for Two Necklaces
by Lindsay Lee.
Cutting out jewelry with a saw is a real hassle so I was pleased to cut one seahorse out and use the base also for a necklace.
I used 22 gauge copper and drew the seahorse out on heavy bristle board.
I cut the seahorse out an used a sharpie pen to draw it on the copper. Now you have the cardboard pattern if you want to make more later.
I often shop garage sales and thrift shops for beads when they come home they are sorted into my plastic tray for use later. This mix of beads is perfect for adding the orange bead trim to my seahorse.
I used both pieces of copper with a torch fired base as it never looks tarnished and I rubbed the seahorse with Renaissance wax.
