This is one of my most recent pieces from the studio. The first is in progress:
And here's the finished piece:
The polymer was cold connected between sterling and copper. Whenever adding polymer to metal, it usually doesn't happen quickly for me. It seems to be a slower process than the bead making was.
My studio has also expanded a bit. I seem to have taken over most of the downstairs. I've been acquiring tools (just another tool junkie). There's two tools I tend to use the most - my hydraulic press and my rolling mill. I enjoy making paper patterns with my Silhouette for the mill - which can also be used to texture polymer. I'll share some of those in the days to come!
