Warning! This post will contain a few pictures, so, heads up dial-up users ;).
It’s fun! Using the big cameras (yes, I know, I have the terminology down! :D) are a lot of fun, although at first glance they look daunting and heavy. The pictures I took from them were bad so I opted for my digital point and click camera. Now, what would a post like this be without pictures? Here’s a few out of the hundreds I took of my makings :).
The first photo (below) is one I took with the SLR camera. The problem with SLR cameras are that they pick up every single, intricate detail – even dust or bad polishing/cleaning. We’ll pretend everything’s perfect though ;).
That seems to be the only decent one I took from the SLR so now I’ll swiftly move on with pictures taken from my digital camera. By the way, I will eventually get the stones set. I just need some contacts first :D. Anyway…
The picture above is of my hair slide, which I made for my final project. It’s made of real silver :). The stone in the centre of the flower is a green aventurine cabochon.
The picture above shows my not so impressive engraving skills – it’s a key fob. I’m just glad we didn’t have to engrave in silver, although, I’m going to be cheeky and silver-plate the copper :P.
The silvery goodness above is the other thing I made for my 1st year final project. Again, it’s a brooch – my third overall. I guess you know what inspired my design ;P.
Huh, just realised that if you look carefully you can see my blurred hands and the top I’m wearing, hah. :D
