..Count down to show time...6 days, 10 hours....
This week I've been playing with lead-free pewter sheet metal.
Pewter is a malleable metal alloy, traditionally 85–99% tin, with the remainder consisting of copper, antimony, bismuth. Silver is also sometimes used. Copper and antimony act as hardeners.
Very nice to work with, and much cheaper than sterling silver.
I also have some wonderful new enameled pieces finished.
Yummy, Spring color, huh?
And some of the finally successful beads from last week's firing..........
Now to spend the weekend making jewelry out of some of this fun stuff!!
