Out of the earth.
Molten lava and crystal shards.
What could be more elementary.
The first necklace uses some base metal and silver plated findings. Nothing fancy. Except for the two beautiful crystal shards. Yes, probably treated with some radiation to make them iridescent. Still beautiful. Simply wired. Simply long.
Next up is something I’ve admired for a while. Molten solder stamping. Some poetically refer to it as molten lava jewelry. And when you are in the middle of it, it is like playing with lava. Using a soldering iron instead of a torch, silver lead free solder wire is melted onto copper metal discs. Again the iron is used to heat the solder into a liquid puddle. Then quick as you can, press a red rubber design stamp into the molten mass. Leave a minute or so to cool and the stamp will easily release.
New goal for the next round…less solder. Really want a bit more of the copper to peek through the solder.
I’ll keep you posted on my experiments. I have ideas.
