    Metal & Grete

    Second school project

    I’m really proud of how this pair of earrings turned out, I think they are fabulous if I can so myself. Scansione 3

    This is the design of the earrings, I initially planned on having snowflake made of multiple stones instead of a single gemstone for earrings, I simplified the design for time reasons but I think that they are nicer this way finally.

    I was able to learn the technique of chasing and repoussè during the process, it is a technique that forms the metal with the use of chasing tools (like the ones you see on the picture), a hammer, a bowl of black pitch and a ton of patience

    In this technique you work booth from behind and from the front of the pieces

    and here there are the final earrings.

    The gemstones are rutilated quartz, I think that they really convey a “Ice Feeling”, with the golden lines almost freezed in place.

    Do you like them? let me know.

      Hello Grete,
      I really love your work!
      I stumbled across your blog while searching for wax carving techniques on the web. Your story really resonated with me- I’ve always loved creating things, but fell into the mentality that I had to pick a “safe” career. Likewise, I have followed my passion of jewelry making. However, I live in the U.S. and jewelry schools are few and far between. I am interested to know what jewelry school you attend in Florence as I am considering studying abroad. Thank you for your time.-Yahaira
