This week I have been playing with filigree..Attaching it to long soldered boxes..
at first I was unhappy with the solder flowing over the filigree..
my initial idea was to have the filigree show..
...but I quickly started to like the look of the solder covering it and still leaving some holes peaking through..
One of those..Happy little Mistakes..
..and once the pieces were finished I added some patina to give them that overall "old" look.
"Create","Found" and "Reminisce"
created with brass sheets,filigree,trinkets
and a resin.
Now in the Shop.
I also had a chance to finish up a mini journal..It was in need of something special hanging off to the side and so I filled one of my soldered boxes with something different..
a fabric bead...
Ooh I just love that hard metal with the softness of the bead.
"Emerge" can be found Here.
