First Metalsmith Class

This weekend, I finally took a much desired metals class at Flame Kissed Beads that involved creating a sterling silver pendant.

The components include:
Sterling Silver
Copper
Iolite

We applied a texture (+ pickeled it), an applique (+ pickeled it), cut metal (+ pickeled it), choose a gem to fit into a pre-made bezel (+ pickeled it), sweat soldered, and finally, pickeled it. At the very end, we tumbled the piece and fitted the gem. Okay, I might have exaggerated on the pickeling.

Anyhow, I’ve got my piece and I can’t wait to string it!
