Metal necklaces


I posted four metal necklaces that I made during Deryn's on-line summer jewelry challenge (see previous post). They were a lot of fun! It is still open and anyone can join. If time allows I will try making a couple of more pieces.

I've always loved the look of metal in its many forms, colors and playing with different patinas. In addition to the amazing book that Deryn's challenge is covering, Wrap, Stitch, Fold & Rivet by Mary Hettmansperger, there are several other artist's books that go into detail, for example, Metal Craft Discovery Workshop by Linda & Opie O'Brien and Metal Effects by Cheryl Darrow.

Have fun playing with metal!

Deryn Mentock's Summer Jewelry Challenge Project

I know summer is almost over but I couldn't resist doing a few of these projects that Deryn is hosting over on her challenge blog http://http// I have admired her work for a long time and hope to some day take a class or two from her, but until then I wanted to try my hand at metalsmithing!
