I use sheet metal, either purchased or from my own scraps melted down and rolled into sheet. I then can make into bezels to set stones, forming it to ring shanks or pendants or anything else.
I will buy purchased wire, or roll my own with my new rolling mill. I then can make ring shanks, form designs, add detail to a piece…
Metal clay is a clay-like medium used to make jewelry, beads, and small sculpture. It consists of very small particles of precious metals (such as silver, gold or platinum) mixed with an organic binder and water.
This is a technique I love to do when traveling, I just grab my small box of materials and I never have to sit idle. I can’t say that about most of the other process.
Sometimes a pendant just needs a simple chain. Other times, it needs something more. Stringing is another way to add more statement to a piece. How you string it can completely alter the piece.
This is a process where you can chemically bond silver or gold to a delicate stone or to metal. I am just starting to work with this process so I still have lots to learn.
