That sounds like a really cool technique.
I would like to try that one day. Thanks for sharing, Willie.
This is a flat heavily pierced 18g copper.
Two identical actually.
Earrings sawn in the natural pattern of monarch wings.
They will remain open (backless) as per the customer’s request, but normally I solder a thin piece of brass as a backplate and it gives a great contrast after patina and the thin brass adds some structural integrity ( those earrings are 24g and require the brass to add rigidity) but these are sawn, will not get heated again, and wouldn’t benefit from added texture of hammering of any sort. So I will smash them between the bench block (steel) and, here’s the question-
Wood or leather under the earring when I try to harden with steel bench block?
Thanks so much you guys.
