by Amanda (torchandhammer) About this piece: This necklace represents the knowledge that your heart is YOURS, not a plaything for someone else. Sometimes we have to learn that the hard way. :-( I used copper metal clay to form the winged, padlocked heart, and attached it to a necklace made of copper, hand-spun yarn, labradorite, pearl, and Picasso-finish Czech glass.

About this piece: Riesgo This piece was inspired by the little acorn that hangs from the pendant. The etched brass is copper riveted to a piece of oak. It took several weeks before inspiration hit me.

About this piece:
 Flores
The Flower. The inspiration came when a friend commissioned me to make a ring. In her words, "I want the most obnoxious ring ever!". So...I designed this ring using some of my newly handmade tools. If you look in close you will see where I textured the edges with my newly handmade tool. So fun! If you look in close you will see where I textured the edges with my newly handmade tool. So fun!
