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.


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!
