Silver triangle

I know my silversmithing posts aren't very popular, but I do want to keep this blog as a journal for me too, so I'm going to post about it anyway!  Also, I love this piece, I'm so proud of it.

I posted about my copper triangle at the end of last year.  I then went on to make one out of silver and I'm in love with it!


This is a hollow form.  It's made with 0.8mm sheet silver, cut and soldered together and then filed to remove the joins.  The top piece has been textured by rolling it through a mill with a piece of fabric.


After finishing, I drilled a hole across one of the points to string it.


The back was polished to perfection, but I've worn it a lot and it's become marked already!


I strung it on a pre-bought sterling-silver chain.  I think it works perfectly with the design.  Now I just need to string the copper version...

Oh wow, that's a beautiful piece of jewellery; contemporary and very "wearable". By the way; have you ever worked with precious metal clay?

this is a pretty piece, I am sure it has been admired when you are wearing it, yes you must get the copper on e completed too as I am sure that will look good too though not sure what sort of chain you will have for that

Whoa. That doesn't look like something you can just make, if you see what I mean? It's like a professional made it. I am super impressed!
