My final in metals 3. It is a hair bun holder (will post picture in use and close up of details later)
Copper sheet cut and hammered to shape and texture. Copper wire bent and twisted and textured. Chain (not made by me
) Wet packed Enameled copper bezeled and soldered bezel on then set enameled piece. I free handed the design in the wet packing so that I didn't have to focus on the details and it could be more abstract/simplified. The copper was dipped a couple times in liver of sulfur for a few seconds each time to give it the color it is. Love the slight rainbow effect, granted it tried to rub off so I played with that and dunked it once again after I rubbed a little off.
This was a fun project. I am depressed I am not able to take metals next semester
for it didn't fit into my schedule however I am looking forward to returning in the future. I feel this is one of my strongest pieces.
I have been wanting to make a piece for the hair for a while now that would embody my character secretly somehow. Granted she is present in body not referenced as I would have liked it, but I am still learning how to reference loosely
Suinarra is a sea elf character of mine that wears her hair up most of the time due to its length and wavy nature, mostly in a bun. So I originally wanted to be a replica of her bun stick that was in the shape of a long spiral shell. But due to my lack of carving skills that hasn't been possible "yet"
. Her piece has a dangle to it and I really wanted to incorporate that piece of scrap as a dangle.
Also if you can think of a better name I am open to suggestions
