1st Class Project: Copper Pin

The first project my jewelry instructor gave the class was to create a pin/name tag using methods of cutting, hammering, texturing a piece of copper sheet.

Those of you that know my pinstriping style won't be surprised to find a wing in this design.


Before I cut it out,  I put the copper through the rolling mill with a feather on top of it. After cutting it out, did some more texturing using a chasing hammer, stamps, etc. A lot of fun and a lot of potential for future projects.
