Workbench Wednesday – coronet design mkIII


Just a quick one: working on show pieces this week. Still working on the joining mechanisms for some bits, but this is the rough final layout. My torch won’t handle this much metal in one hit, so some of these connections will have to be cold joins.

All the black and white cutout paper bits are going to be etched silver. It looks a bit hodgepodge right now but when all of this is in silver it should tone together a lot better.

Stones: prehnite, prasiolite, larimar, London Blue topaz, turquoise, peridot.

I’m scared stiff of this project… my calculations are showing nearly $150 in silver on top of the many stones. I really, really don’t want to stuff this up. :)
