Oak Leaf Pendant in Progress


I am working on another custom order necklace:  Oak leaf pendant on chain. 
I made a template of a leaf, traced it on copper sheet and cut it out, sanded and shaped it.

I love the look of the leaf as it is (the finish I mean).  I achieved this by annealing and lightly sanding the leaf.  Unfortunately, I will not be keeping the look for this project.  We're going for something much cleaner and shinier.  You'll need to stay tuned for the end results!

After doing all of this work, I realized I had to make the smaller version of the leaf... and I needed to cut down the size.  Not a big deal, but it gave me a bit more work.  

I'll have to post the smaller leaf so you can see the new, smaller version.

Happy Crafting all!

Progress on New Leaf Pendant


Progress on a pendant I'm working on for custom order.

Sterling Silver Leaf that I cutout.  I will be fusing the silver to the copper plate.

Next I'll need to to make and solder a bezel to the plate and prepare a bail.
