Leaves

from rolling and annealing and rolling and annealing and then this...


They'll be used for jewelry pieces for LuxeCoop and some interesting art objects for AutumnLeavesHome...

It's hard to give up my jewelry shop, so I'm hanging on...still clinging...there are still items for sale...it's still there...in cyberspace...

meanwhile, the clean up of my chemical area of my studio commences!

Forward I move...

Love the texture on those leaves. Did you use real leaves? They never let us use real ones in class- very cool.

Pam, i hear you, the copper works so well, probably because I buy it dead soft, :-)Susie, my instructor says there's a stage where you can roll a real leaf, um, it was such a vague description I should have written it down. I tried several from Michaels. A friend, Caroline who smiths (and has been smithing much longer than me) at class is my go-to guru for all things rolled. She's so sweet about telling me how to test for pressure etc. We have to use one of the hand crank rollers, we can't use the big electric one, so my arms were (my right arm) sore after! (but I was so happy with the results)Julia yes, get that mill going! just touch the screen Maryann :P
I just realized I could even out the pain of always using my right arm had I tried to roll with my left, doh
