Learning Curve

This is what I've been doing lately. Lots of sterling silver and copper. And fumes, from the Lenk torch that just broke after about half a dozen uses. I actually made these sterling rings some time ago, but I wasn't happy with how they looked, so I spent some time today working on their finish with my trusty hammer.

The ball ends, below, are made with the torch ... it's very fun to do!

I've been making the curvaceous links (below) thanks to Deryn Mentock and her online class, The Art of Closure. Aren't they awesome? I love all the loopiness!

The links above are sterling silver. The links below are copper. As you can see, my expertise is not high end --- I guess it's a good thing I like the primitive look!

It's not very much to show, but it is what's been occupying me today!

Now it's time to switch gears. In other words, it's time for some sewing. Yes!
