|Smooth River Stone and Shell Fragment Pendant|
I ordered some diamond coated twist drill bits and
can't seem to stop drilling holes in things.
I use my battery operated Dremel because I'm
afraid to use the Foredom. You know, that whole thing
about electricity and water.
And I do love the new fire blaster torch. It's allowing me
to work more with copper.
|Lots of small, flat, black river stones....|
|Some of the flat, black stones mixed with copper raindrops on a sliding knot leather cord.|
|And a detail of same....|
|Brazed, forged and hammered copper teardrops....|
|And they're turned into earrings with dark blue fresh water pearls....|
|More drilling on a shell fragment & white sea glass.|
Am also having fun trying out new ways to hang pendants....
I finally found a supply of copper chain on ebay & love having
a big supply so I can cut the length I want.
Then all it needs is Liver of Sulfur, sanding & sealing.
|Yet another smooth, flat river stone..and one of the copper raindrop charms.|
I've been sealing these stones with Dorland's wax and
really like the smooth, rich finish it gives them.
|One of the copper headpins was used here to secure the raindrop & form the hanger.|
|More small drilled river stones....|
|And Chase, the Shih Tzu Wonder Dog...was 9 years young on the Nov. 2nd. :)|
