There's Something About Etching

I've been etching to tell you something.....hehehe. But really, I've been busy etching brass for a project that I have in mind.

I'm pretty pleased with the way these two came out. I colored the one on the right side with my torch.Here's a necklace that I just finished. It's copper with fresh water pearls. Going to put this one on Etsy as soon as I get more views of it. I've lost the good light for now ---tomorrow is another day.

My goal is to try some of the projects from Mary Hettmansperger's book " Wrap,Stitch,Fold & Rivet". Deryn Mentock at somethingsublime.typepad.com issued a jewelry challenge to work through Mary's book with her through August. There's a chance to win one of Deryn's pieces.
I think working through a book like this is a great idea. You can learn something new or try something that you haven't done in awhile. Good luck to all who try.

Thank you for visiting my blog...I just figured out how to respond in kind (can you tell I am new to all of this, lol).

I love your work with metals..the piece in your banner is delightful and I look forward to seeing your progress with this book project!!
