This morning I worked on a sheet of wax. This is for a plique-à-jour project, I thought of making it out of gold (being a volcano, I want to work with red colours, and they react badly with silver) flat wire, soldering, but I have no idea when or how I am gonna get this, so I started working on a wax sheet I already had. This is for casting it with the lost wax method.
Very much in early stages.
I’ve also been forging some copper wire. I used to like a lot to play with wire and pliers, when I was still in jewellery school some 12 years ago… why didn’t I play with it all this time? it is such fun, and forging it even more. I am thinking of using these as links for a chain for the Eucaliptus pendant. But I want some round stone beads too… And perhaps this eucaliptus seed pod I drilled today too.
PS: Forgot to mention, yesterday I bought tickets, we will be in Barcelona from the 9th to the 14th of January :)
