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!
