Another piece of jewelry done for a challenge. This time it was Foldforming Central May Challenge. The theme was Flower/Botanical. Check out what other artists made for the Flower challenge
I couldn't decide what to make but on last minute I got this idea to revisit my metal ribbon
technique. Basically I gathered a thin sheet of metal like I would on fabric ribbon. It's fun and the result is always unique.
It started with a scalloped circle that I sawed out of brass.
Then I cut a million of copper wire, ok 2 dozens, and balled them and then stick them through holes on my metal and solder them. Same technique I used to make the fencing onÂ Earthling Necklace
This is how it looks like when it's all done and pretty. Those sticks are sticking out about 2-3 mm above the surface they're soldered on.
I had too much fun and added elements as I go. First I made the leaf dangle and was contemplating where should I put it. I decided at the bottom of the flower it looked best. Then I add the red pearl and 2 lampwork beads on the chain.
The finished piece can be purchase at Popnicute.com - Frilly Flower
