My first try at hammering metal. I love working with brass. Not sure if I like the pendant yet. I kinda ran out of stuff, so made one by spiralling my leftover brass wire!

Components:

16 gauge brass wire 20 gauge brass wire Green jasper ovals Emerald rough cuts

    Very cool!! I did a set of those loops for a bracelet for my niece for her wedding. I hammered a few to death before I got the hang of it. :) I thought she would hate it but she loves it and still wears it almost daily over a year later. I think you did a fantastic job!!

    Beautiful color and the design is great!

    If you like working with brass and haven’t worked with copper give it a try. It is softer and much easier to shape.

    Hey, Kerry! I just checked out your web site and it looks great to me. Of course with the lovely warm colors you have chosen it is bound to be great. I did a quick run through of your jewelry and it look fantastic . A big plus in my book is your site is easy to navigate. Best of luck! :D

    Thank you so much little round chick :) It has taken me over a year to complete the website! so much hard work went into it, with the design and I am glad you said it is easy to navigate as that is exactly what I was going for! I spent many weeks researching and thinking what I would like from a website if I were looking for the first time. We also spent many nice days in the woods and on the beach in Savannah on our vacation taking picutres, which was lots of fun! The ones which were the most challenging were the pictures of the gemstones in my ‘magic of crystal gemstone’ pages! We went to a store and brought one of each stone and then had to photograph them one by one. But anyway, finally its done! Thank you for looking! :)
