The New Hotness!!

I’m a studio scavenger. A couple of weeks ago I found a cool looking welded wire shape that someone disgarded. Today I came across someone’s disgarded brass ring-soldered-to-flat-brass piece and had an a vision of a necklace.
I welded circles to the wire find, drilled holes and patinaed the brass find, and sewed a length of yellow knitted yarn to either end to form the necklace!
I think it’s pretty coooool!

Ponoko progress and hiccups

Well… It’s almost done.
Hiccups I’ve had so far include:
– burning through one of my felt pieces when soldering a jump ring around it
– realizing I left my completed jump ring chain sitting in the acid stuff at studio
– brass does not heat patina in my oven

Other than that it’s been peachy.

Um… I give up…

No idea how I did this. But at least I can see now that my edges line up!

It’s ALMOST a real ring.

I think Boolean Union worked this time. Turns out two of my shapes weren’t joined.

I used “32.3,.643,0” as my starting spline variables and “0,.643,0” as the ending, but still not a perfect circle. Hopefully I’ll be able to figure out in class tomorrow.
