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!
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.
Because otherwise I’ll loose it to the depths of my disorganized hard drive.
What I wouldn’t do for a friggin “Free Transform” option. Where’s my easy WYSIWYG scaling and rotating?
But other than that, building shapes are coming along. I have sketches I’m working off of in my sketchbook.
Ponoko came! The pieces look awesome and smell like feet. Woo! 🙂
The mustache piece is just for fun. Also pretty awesome and foot-scented.
I didn’t notice the bottom outline until I hit ‘export.’ But, here it is…
Wow, after getting the materials, Ponoko really does move fast. Sweet!
I have no effing clue what to do for our 3rd project- welding stuff.
I’d like to do something with a repeating pattern, I think, but Megan Auman took all the good designs! And how should I make mine unique if I -do- do a textile pattern; its not like I could do a pillow.
Back to the drawing board.
