My normal mode of creating is based on "one-of-a-kind" pieces, with a few limited edition pieces here and there. I like this mode of work, because I tend to be a bit like my ADHD son and get bored/lose focus easily! Currently, though, I am gearing up for a couple of Holiday shows in the next couple of weeks and need to be in production mode and have been going back through past work to find a few items I think bear repeating.
A few months ago I created these fold formed hoops. I had been wanting to make more of these, but not really these, though..you know? After sifting through my scrap metal, I decided to change the overall shape and bling them up a bit.
I got the copper ones done, and totally fell in love, so I hauled out my tiny hoard of sterling sheet. It is so expensive, I have been holding on for just the right project! I think I'll go ahead and use it up on more of these...what do you think?
