special blob & the skinnies........

The rather aptly named squashed blob pendant was made by melting down some scrap silver with my torch, until it was liquid, and squeezing it with a pair of pliers to make indentations. It was then quenched, pickled to remove firestain, and drilled befor being hung on a sterling silver chain. £14.00

The antiquated pacman is 98% recycled. The centre is a 1920 3 penny bit, and the base was made from scrap silver which i mealted down, and rolled out to form sheet, before soldering on the 3p pacman, and decorating with punches. It is hunf on a vintage sterling silver twist chain. The only non-recycled things are the jumprings. £18.00

Special. Handmade sterling silver special pendant with vintage sterling silver chain. £14.00

Copper and sterling silver skinny rings.
Sterling silver skinny ring: sliver wire is soldered with an exsessive amount of silver solder, to form the blob, and hammered out for texture. £10.00 each. All sizes available.

Silver wire with gold solder blob. £12.00 each. All sizes available.
Sterling silver and copper skinny ring. £6.00 each. All sizes available.

Very nice - especially like 'special' necklace. I've heard oxidising is a very smelly process - I take it that's how you got the lettering darker?

The special necklace is oxidised naturally, throught the process of heating and quenching, and the excess oxide was polished away.
Hope this answers your question,
