It's Almost a Bracelet!!

This is what I've been working on for the past 3 weeks at my metalsmithing/jewelry class at the Columbus Cultural Arts Center. It is my very first attempt at creating my own design using only metal. Each of the links in this bracelet is hand-sawed. The vein cut-outs proved to be very challenging, but they did give me some great sawing practice!

Here are my photos of the leaf bracelet-in-progress:



The bracelet is not quite finished: I'd like to add a greenish patina to every other link. I also have to shape the clasp/hook at the end of the bracelet.

Not bad for a first try, huh? :)

Amy, that looks awesome! Good for you. I took a metalsmithing class and have become somewhat obsessed myself. Must get more tools. . .
