I have dove into my found object box and started making some found object jewelry. This weekend, I learned how to drill metal, hammer it out if needed and make it have a faux patina. I played for several hours with many pieces like washers, watch parts, and all kinds of things I have found on the ground. Well, most of it I found. My husband finds little treasures for me as do some of my friends. It's funny because when they give me some little metal object they picked up off the ground, it is like receiving the finest gifts. I think it is so thoughtful of them to do this for me. Anywhoooo.......I know I babble. This piece started out with a crown but I could not get it to cooperate with the jump ring or the chain so I had to dethrown this queen. Sorry!
I made this dragonfly soldered charm necklace for my friend Kim. She loves dragonflies and she specifically requested a necklace with a dragonfly! So, I gave it to her yesterday and she said she really liked it. I'm experimenting with doing some new and different things with my soldered charms and when I finish a few pieces, I will share them. Well, must get ready for work...but Happy Hump Day and hope your Creative Juices are flowing! Hugs!
