Sterling silver pendant by Marci

Postby marcib » Thu Dec 11, 2014 1:06 pm

This is a picture of the sterling silver and turquoise pendant I made last weekend ( Dec 6-7, 2014) in at a silversmithing class I took in Cincinatti along with Carol Korros.
We had an absolute blast and I think I am officially hooked on another hobby . ;help:

But it will make great settings for the porcelain , right? ( she says, trying to justify having to now buy all the tools )

It looks like there is a little shmootz at the top of the bezel but its just the weird way the light hit it..

Hello my great Artiste !
Fantastique - Wunderschön - Grandiose !!!
You silly girl, you make a glass without me, only with Caros. If you say one word, I´m here in some hours. For silver, stones in different colors and fun I will not have a jet leg.

Your are right this would be a new hobby not only for you, I like your pendant it looks great. Thank you for showing it to me and the others.
;thanks; :ppio: ;thanks;

Marci, I love the piece you did. Hope you will love this hobby too.

Here are a couple of findings I made a couple years ago. I need to get back to this work too.

Hi Marci this post made me smile, this is how I got hooked on metal smithing. You have done a great job. I think you would have enjoyed soldering with the torch, i did
