I have no idea what this symbol is called but I know that it is s astrological sign. After seing the pendant I had made she decided (or rather didn't decide) That she wanted sme thing as well. I figure it should make a nice window hanging because it is to soft (and crappy looking) to wear. I made this from some copper wire I found around a feild stone foundation at some beutiful ruins of a house that were reclaimed by a mat of perriwinkle. In the old garbage pit I found a few scraps of bright green copper wire. I tried to return it to it's origional green color by quenching in carbonic acid (seltzer water) but to no avail as it only turned it red so it looked like iron. Insttead I went for the black neolithic look by quenching it in vinager.

guess you never know what you can find if you go around digging =P

Thanks! That's due in part to the wire being dug up in a turn of the century homestead garbage pit.

If you heat the wire till it glows a dark red, and then cool it in water, it won't crack, and bend easier than before (it's a process called annealing). Also, if you want the green colour, leave it in the garden for a week and let it be rained on.

looks so hard to bend. Do u use plyers or sumfin? I can't believe it took u about 15 mins :wow:
Apothacer's avatar
Yeah, I used plyers and did it while it was hot so the wire woulden't crack and so that it would bend easier.

The one thing I miss about chemistry is the part where you get to drop metals in chemical solutions and watch them turn different colors. Or catch fire. Especially catch fire.

Around me, chemicals react differently, no matter how carefully I measure them. They just do things they're not supposed to or don't do things they are supposed to. So I failed chemistry. :shrug:

Oh, that's weird. Sorry you failed chemestry. We had a total dufas for our chemistry teacher. Making us sing "Cheme-tree" (Chistmas) carols around a lab equipment chemistree. Then their was the joke contest with Moles as the subject. :puke:

I think everyone does joke contests with moles. You know, they could have saved themselves a lot of trouble by just naming it something else in the first place.
Though I suppose "weasels" would be worse.
Apothacer's avatar
Yes but when the contestants get to read them aloud before the teacher can even think of censoring them Weaslested doesn't incite mas pandimonium.

Hahaha... nice. No one in my classes was creative enough to think of that.
