Moai pendant, 1 inch tall, burnt silver
This Easter Island statue consists of two layers sheet silver. I heated the layers for a melted effect. Had to be careful not to overdo it.
The resulting stone effect appealed to me. I did grate the edges for more of a 3D effect.
Edo Pendant - stones set in new silver (alpaca)
Another product I designed recently, was the above pendant, cut out of alpaca sheet. It's kind of a planetarium. I thought it would be interesting to see if I could cut lines so that the stones seemed to float a bit.
I think I managed that quite well. I added a rivet with a little adjustment cut to the top and a hole for the pendant chain.
Viking ring in brass and alpaca
These are very inspirational finds. I often reproduce the designs, like this ring above. I used brass and alpaca, as real silver or gold are too expensive for such an experiment.
