All you have to do is:

2. Reblog this (please don’t delete any original text) as much as you’d like for multiple entries. but please don’t spam your followers! :)
3. Likes will count as an additional entry.

I will use a random generator to select the winner. This giveaway will be open until midnight August 31st EST - I will be selecting a winner then and notifying on September 1st. 

Good luck!!!

Doing some basic sketches for my 3rd year. Playing about with layering at the moment. I’m thinking this would look good in layers of anodized aluminum, riveted together. I’m not sure what I’m going to use it for yet, I want to say necklace, but I also think it would look good as an embellishment on the front or flap of a clutch bag maybe?

Working on some Pendant designs based on butterfly wings for third year.  some are turning out good, some not so good. Hopefully a bit of research & inspiration will keep the creative flow going this afternoon

Aluminium, with stamped copper, steel screws and tension set hardwood base.

I think i’d like to make a taller version of this with smaller pierced out quadrilaterals rather than one large one.

This project was about exploring joining methods and new techniques.

The photos are progress shots of the enamelling and a photo of the finished vessel. Each vessel had a tension set hardwood base.
