Very nice to hear it and thanks also for the fave and watch.

Your own pieces look also very interesting. (I tried electroforming some times in design school.)

Thanks Astalo. I really enjoy electroforming. It's part science part magic 😊

Thanks for the fave. I mix all kind of goldsmith/silversmith construction techniques like filing, engraving, repousse, bending, drilling, soldering, polishing, riveting and so on. It's too much trouble to explain the whole process from start to the end, but internet is full of different tips for jewelry making. www.revereacademy.com/guide/be… - www.kernowcraft.com/jewellery-…

I sell my metal works in some fairs, conventions, countryside markets and places like that. I attend about 8-12 events in a year and most of them are located in southeast area in Finland quite close to the Russian border.

I've seen spoon and fork jewelry but not quite like this. Fantastic work. I love the top left one and the bug the most.

Yeah. Most of the guys only cut spoon in two pieces and bend some loops to the ends and there you have two simple pendants for sale.

It's too simple for my own taste, so i always try to use also different surface patterns, attach stones or other new metal parts to them and so on..

I'm sorry, but i don't have enough time for new groups, because i don't usually visit DeviantART in every day of the week and there is always huge amount of new messages waiting when i log in. (Most of my time in here go for checking/answering the messages and i don't want to increase that job too much.. :roll: )

But you can of course add some of my images to that group or it's favourites if you want. I use recycled objects quite often on my metal work projects.

thank you for your courtesy and your honesty. I would love to feature some of your items in the group sections or favorites. My intention was to raise awarness and show others ways to get along with commercialism.

Again thank youa nd i do hope that your busyness is due to good things. Thank you agian. 'D'

Cool. That sounds nice.
I have always supported recycling, freeganism and other similar lifestyles and it's usually very nice to notice more and more new recycling projects all over the world in these days.

Have you made any of these with internal clockwork parts? kinda of a steampunkish motif...with cutaway sections to show them just below the surface?
