Two days ago I went to the casting house to drop off some wax models for casting in sterling silver.
The models are of three small charm pendants, one of a sea turtle, one of my favorite animals of which I have a tattoo, a lucky four leaf clover, and a mushroom. I love mushrooms and I intend on incorporating them into more of my work in the future.
The pendants are four long cylinders. Three of them I will set with briolette beads and one with tourmaline beads.
I have began to saw off the spruce remains from them and filing them off, and will probably spend another day polishing them before I can set the stones.
I will post some of the process next and then the finished pieces.
