hammered and kooky silver pendants
The silversmithing course is starting to bear fruit.
I have spent the last couple of times welding and beating little objects in addition to the projects we are supposed to be doing.
I've found working with offcuts of silver and wire that I've brought along and making them into something pretty much more satisfying than the projects we are tasked with.
Above are two little silver pendants beaten from silver offcuts of the 'official' pendant I have been making.
The silver rings holding the stone pendants are welded, hammered and polished pieces of wire I have been saving for such an occasion.
I like their slight kookiness a lot more than the symmetrical rings I have been buying from my usual supplier.
