Now the base metal was prepped it was time to let loose my textile mind and begin the layers of textures which also act as a great stress relief?! Oh the fun to be had with a hammer....

After painstaking hours upon hours of sawing and filing my components the pieces of my jigsaw were starting to come together. Only now do I truely understand the blood sweat and tears that go into sculptures! - quite literally in my case I may add - ** note to self filing small triangles into sharp points make mini hazards to fingers** yet another battle scar to add to the collection and I carried on.
A few months ago I began my journey In the world of metal work and silversmith and gave you a few posts in the early days of this new venture. My intentions were to photograph and share with you the progression of my first collection ... But alas I got swept away in the magic and I am only now getting round to writing again. So here is a quick catch up of my work - watch and see the metal transform from raw materials into their wearable form. I certainly have a new love in my life!! I'd love to know what you guys think ..
