It is time for our second Art Jewelry Boot Camp Blog Hop. This time around we talked about texturing metal- whether in sheet or wire form. We talked about what you can use as far as tools and materials to texture. This boot camp was specific to hand texturing- no etching or rolling mills allowed!
I decided to use the piece I made using letter stamps on wire, in my finished piece. I find that I have too many started items lying around that never make their way into finished jewlery.
Here was the piece I made for Love my Art Jewelry.
So I made a couple of matching spirals, cut some jump rings, made a textured clasp to match and put together this piece. I just LOVE all the texture in it.
The ceramic beads are by Marsha Neal Studio, the stones that dangle in the front are fossil stones.
Texturing wire was really fun, and I wouldn't have really tried it if it weren't for Boot Camp.
