During my creative weekend, I decided to make myself a necklace. Here is how it turned out.
I tried my hand at etching metal again. It wasn't so bad. I have a number of pieces I did. My only problem is using liver of sulphur. For some reason, I don't have much luck getting it to turn my metal as black as I want it. I am using the liquid kind and I just don't like it. I learned the nest technique from Deryn Mentock last weekend. It's fun to make. The necklace itself is longer than it looks here. I pinned back the chain so that I could get a picture of it hanging. I am going to work more on the metal part so I can get the bird to stand out more. But for tonight...I am done. I am tired and I am going to relax now. Wire work is tiring!
