Recycling Silver by Fusing

I melted some silver pieces by accident this morning and that actually led me to create a few new items. I remember that the jewelry teacher from the college days taught us one day about the technique called fusing which finnaly was introduced to my creation today. I have plenty of scraps including failed bezels to use for recycling too. It's quite fun actually. Accidental outcome is the funnest part of it and i noticed that it's hard to create something identical from one to the other. It all depends but I seem to like learning things like this rather than reading instructions, which tends to overwhelm me and kill inspirations and motivations. The almost finished pieces are now being polished in tumbler machine. I will update tomorrow. Have a nice evening!

How about circles?

A little distorted circles they are. I don't know about you but that's the way I like it. Weekend passed so quickly with a full of joy. Getting ready for a new fresh week to arrive. Have a good evening!

Over the Weekend

BAZAAR October's "My List" featured the designer Rick Owens.
I thought it was interesting that he only wears black from tip to toe like a priest or a prisoner, according to him, so he can focus more on clothes for other people.

10月号のBAZAARの『My List』というコーナーではデザイナーのリックオーウェンズさんが特集されていました。 他の人の服作りに専念するために、自分は上から下までまるで牧師か囚人みたいに(という表現をご本人はしています)真っ黒々なんだというのは面白いなと思いました。

Here are some simple metalsmithing work over the weekend. What I want to make changes in daily basis but I have been enjoying experimenting things lately, making basic shapes with metal and combining them. Variations are unlimited. I like how the ring and the bracelet came out but they will need more improvement.
週末にかけてシンプルな彫金作業を少々。 日替わりで作りたいものが変わるという気まぐれさながら、ここのところ、実験を楽しんでいます。メタルで色んな形を作ってそれを組み合わせたりして。バリエーションは無限大。リングとブレスの出来栄えにはなかなか満足ですが、まだまだ改善の余地あり。

Forever21's matte top coat surely does its job. It turns any shiny polish into matte finish.

Urban Hippie -Free People

Pink and Purple

Creation from yesterday.

This sparkling light purple toned gem in a bracelet is called pink amethyst.
Each link is hand formed and hammered, then tumble-polished.
Love how this turned out.

Necklaces with magenta chalcedony, ruby and amethyst are in oxidized finish to give off a bohemian vibe that I like.
What I completed today are some metalworks. I will post tomorrow.

Making more rings

Being patient, more careful and precise is the only way to make it right.

I'm talking about ring making but I guess it applies to so many other things in life.

Rings rings..

I had a successful ring making day today.
A few need to be redone tomorrow but I'm happy with how most of them turned out.

To be continued...

Cooling down...maybe?

I felt like this weekend was a long one.

I rested a lot.
I ate a lot.
Did some catch-ups with my friend who I haven't seen for a while.

I wonder what kind of design will come to my mind next week. xx

Dreamy Labradorite

Labradorite is my favorite stone.
It has a feel of mysterious and dramatic elegance to it.
I also like to combine different shades of metals to bring out eclecticism.

So here it is.
How do I describe the style?
Modern chic boho!
