Crafting Components

I gotta say, I really enjoy making components rather than a Great Big Finished Product sometimes.

Today I made the long brass charms for these earrings. It was satisfying to emboss, hammer, shape, polish and buff a relatively boring piece of metal into something pretty interesting.


I used some garnet on the tops, there. I should have taken these photos in daylight to better show them off, but I was too impatient (imagine that).

I should take a photo wearing them, they're dang dangly!

I also tried combining the above techniques with letter stamping. I want to revisit it with more time to think about it before trying it out. It has lots of fun potential!
