May Challenge Day 4 – More Fused Silver & A Very Productive Workshop Day

Yesterday I continued experimenting with fusing silver – this time fine silver onto sterling silver, I was in too much of a rush and fusing became melting but I really like the result.

Reeds or Running Water

Sterling silver hammered rings wrapped with fine silver then fused together, I deliberately over heated some of the fine silver so it broke and balled but the rings got a little too hot and what was supposed to be a matching pair for earrings became one pendant articulated in the middle to give movement.

Not sure what to call this – it reminded me of running water or growing reeds so any suggestions please add your comments !

Workshop Update
Yesterday was Jo and Mels last day, Mel had decided to go for a bike ride around the lake with Tim in the morning (the lake is very beautiful this time of year).  We had a very productive day finishing off a couple of bracelets and earrings, making silver bails for some of the fused glass and drilling other pieces.  I’ll post lots of photos of their makes tomorrow.

May Make Challenge – Each day this month I have challenged myself to make a piece of jewellery and blog about it.
