So that's made out of a bronze alloy? What was your process? I have a few friends who are jewelry/metal majors up at school who I've watched make jewelry before, and from what I've gathered from watching them, making something like you posted out of metal isn't easy and a ton of work. So if it is, seriously impressed.
Even if it's not, still pretty cool.
Thanks, I'm honored. I took a piece of flat nugold sheet metal, annealed (heated it to red hot with a torch and then quenched) it, and ran it through a rolling mill with a piece of antique lace to get the pattern. Then I used a metal hole punch and a dremel in some places to start the holes, then a jeweler's saw to cut out the shapes (took forever). Annealed it again to keep the metal soft and bent it into a curved shape around a bracelet mandril. Files, sandpaper and polishing wheel to finish it.
Gimme time, I'll post more craft work.

Yeah, I were never really good at painting, I would make one mistake and just not have the motivation to finish it. I had to do this one project in order to graduate, and it had to be painted... I had to paint a box of art from my favorite artist or the artist who inspired me to do the style I do. Wish I could put it up not to good but proud of how it came out.I apologize wondered off into nowhere again, I was looking into that thread as I do most and I was thinking of joining in but I dunno if I'm ready to reveal myself >=].
Sounds like a neat project, you should totally post it. Which artist did you choose?
