All metals welcome and sterling is appreciated as an alternative metal
For those who want to see the basic process for creating a piece of jewelry, here is a chronicle through the creation of a necklace pendant.
First a brass blank was selected to put my design on. I had an idea about a "drop" of metal with a stone inset at the bottom of the drop. I drew a stylized drop on paper and then cut a brass blank that would be larger than the drawing. The blank was 2 x 6 cm. I cleaned the blank of oxidation.
