more metalsmithing

I've been soldering at my workbench a lot very recently and I am so pleased to be fine tuning my technique so I can list more and more things.

I really like the contrast that I've made between my often bright and intricate vintage jewellery and the simple, organic shapes of my silver work. I think it makes each part of my shop really stand out.

I love creating the teardrops in particular, they are so pretty and very satisfying to put together.

I have been working with circles and drops so far but I think I'd like to make more geometric shapes too - squares, diamonds. Watch this space!
