Spiralling into Art

I hope this has been a good week for all of you, it has been for meSAMSUNG.

I have several pieces to show today, a couple from this week and a couple from last week but all online for the first time today.

The first one I posted is Teardrop in the Rain, a medium length drop steel spiral on a woven copper wire with a silver and turquoise teardrop. Etsy

SAMSUNGThe second is a wire-wrapped spiral pendant in a very steampunk fashion reminiscent of a coil. Etsy

And the final listing for this morning is a long dropping spiral that curves around the neck and encloses a set of gears at the intersection of the steel spirals. EtsySAMSUNG

Steampunk Spiral Drop Necklace

This piece is the primary piece this week:

First step was to weave the copper wire and gear into a long steel shaving:

Then I moved on to create the center mount with the 3 squared stones and the polished stones

Then I finished the piece, mounted the clasp and tried it on.

Glass and Wire

Life is slowly attempting a return to something resembling normal for us and time to work on art and design is returning as much as it ever was. Primary this week were 2 pieces of jewelry I made.

And from the other side, as you can see, this is designed to be able to move and look good from all angles.
