Chatter

folds and edges


About this design:

I like how folded metal looks when it is pulled apart... how the edges harden and make a 'crimp' in the metal. I hammered some copper, pulled it apart, cut it into two pieces, and soldered in a cross bar of copper wire. A little liver of sulfur to take out the shine, and some beer quartz to dangle from below.

Components:

24 gauge copper sheet, 20 gauge copper wire, beer quartz, 24 gauge copper wire.

    Lovely colors and design. Reminds me of a
    flur de lis (spell?) or a cookie cutter… both are cool in my book!
