Insanely challenging..:>)


#1

I just finished a most challenging heart-shaped pendant I’ve ever designed
& metal-carved. On a scale of 10, it’s off the scale and hovering at about
50+! But now I’ve taken about 30 photographs of how this was created from a
wax form till I finished this about 1/2 hour ago. I have to edit the large
array of .jpgs & start the writing. I have now 5 more ‘empty’ castings and
each one will be a tad different from the previous. This process of writing
will take me ? days.

Dear Gerry
If you call this insanely Challenging. I then ask what hope have the rest of us got??? :o

“Squirmite”, & all!
I suppose on “second thought”, it might have been a wrong/poor choice
of words. I humbly apologize! …;>(
After I my ‘detailed’ writing has been completed, I intend to make this
exercise quite an interesting &* easy procedure*. Let me just say, that
after finishing the setting of the stones, this will be a very attractive
new piece of jewellery. I will like to call this an exercise in “learning
a brand new skill
”.
When the important steps of engraving are followed, you’ll be happy in
adding this design into your collection of jewellery…Gerry!

Oh my Garry I am sorry if I have given the wrong impression with my response to your original feed. I had mentioned it as a … well just a funny response I suppose to the words " insanely chalenging" I would love to have the plan / map out on how to make this piece then to find someone to cast it without tooooooo many are bubbles . But that is my "insane challenge"
Again if my post caused you distress I am sorry. I so look forward to your posts. Cheers Suzanne/ squirmite

Advance notice to all; In this special “Fish-Tail” essay I will be leaning
heavily on photographs, instead of hundreds of boring words…:>)
My setting jargon could be a tad different, as some folks might not fully
understand the written word. Because of this, I am very confident
photographs will make this project much easier to follow. I am having
constant use of my iPhone & making each photograph enlarged at that moment.
I have now about over 100 photographs to edit, which is no small task. Some
of them will be just showing how the Flat #40, Onglette #1 & #2 gravers are
cutting. It’s like “Cut once, grab my camera, cut again, another
picture”…‘ad infinitum’!
If anyone, anywhere, wants to buy the (untouched) heart-shaped pendant
when this essay is written, just email me. This way you can follow my
metal-carving instructions, how easy is that?
