Dinah, that necklace set is a true work of art. I love the fact that it's freeform. And you're right. It does show it off better when worn by a human ;-).

Yesterday I was looking for some brass stock.  I got a brass rod, 6gauge, which is pretty stout.  I thought I'd make two by pass bangles for my sons.  I never thought it would take so long, but brass like this not only takes quite a bit to anneal it, it still took massive time to hammer into a circle.  This rod took a fair bit of pressure to bend before annealing.  

I sawed two 12" pieces and have no clue what I'll do with the piece left over, it's not quite long enough to make a bangle but I'll think of something.  Hopefully it will be softer if it's shorter, or maybe not.

What a stunning necklace to wear that has some interesting stones.  The six agate donuts have been linked with 18gauge Sterling silver bands and show Chinese Jade on the Carnelian donuts and Serpentine on the lime green.  Two carved agate leaves hang from three Serpentine beads, with Laboradite beads on either side.  The rough tumbled stones are separated on one side with the round Garnets, and irregular shaped Garnets on the other.  The Sterling silver hand formed clasp has Laboradite chips and beads at the end.  This measures 23" long.

I used a cross peen hammer to mark a design on the down side, and then annealled it again, because the marking work hardened it.

After annealling it a few more times, I held the two ends with my one hand and hammered with the other making sure that the inside was staying round and free of ridges.  I burnished the inside of the top gave it a final sanding with 4000 grit paper, buffed and polished it.

Re-do of a copper over tin bracelet made for my customer in IL.  She bought it off Ebay and hated it.  There were bezel set plastic oval 'stones' on the 3 middle panels, it was dingy and nasty and the bezels were riveted on so they stuck up when you had the bracelet on.  I drilled a hole on either side of the one left by the rivet, and wired in rough turquoise for her and polished it up.
