I have been experimenting with new ways to add color that will last. Not so much on silver, but on the copper which darkens as it ages no matter what i coat it with. This round I am coating the copper cuffs with ice resin.
so time will tell!
this one started out as a spec commission cuff from a sterling silver spoon with brass snakes and a glass eyeball (see above) - but the finished spoon was unbalanced and wouldn't stay straight on the wrist, so I cut the spoon handle off and mounted the eye and snakes on silver focal on a copper cuff. I still have to make the spec commission cuff, and i will be using 2 spoon handles soldered to the spoon bowl so it will fit better. The snakes and the eye mount will be made from bronze clay....
