Day Six, No Minis...
Instead, you get a view of what I did yesterday.
I am starting to do wire wrapped pendants with found materials.
These are some that I did yesterday.
The first photo is all shells...The first two are pieces of shells that I picked up on the beach in CA. They were worn smooth and I used them as is, wrapping them in square copper wire. The third is a piece of Mother of Pearl wrapped in square silver wire. I just did a fancy bail for that one. Not really wrapped.
The second bunch are rocks. The left one is some kind of quartz. I couldn't catch the sparkle in the photo.
The center one is most interesting. It is a rock with a hole worn through it. It must have been in one place for centuries for dripping water to have worn that hole in it.
The third is an unidentified specimen that I just liked. They are all wrapped in square, antique bronze wire.
The second one is an Egyptian scarab wrapped in the antique bronze again.
I keep thinking that there should be some way to use this technique in minis....Any suggestions?
The stone is hard to photograph. The blue in it comes and goes with the light and is almost iridescent when it can be seen.
None of them are perfect, but not bad for beginning.
Sorry about the missing minis. I will be back to that tomorrow.
See you then!
