A Touch Of Spring...

This piece used all the methods I've learned to date, and ended up fun & funky… it makes me smile!!

I started by creating a press-plate of a Daisy-type flower shape, then I pressed a piece of sheet copper using the plate.

I used the piercing saw to cut out the Daisy from the plate, and soldered a fine silver bezel in place.

I did some torch fired enamel on the body of the Daisy, first with an opaque white, then with a translucent blue.

I set a small Amethyst cabochon into the center of the Daisy (very carefully as to not break the enamel).

I created a whimsical little sterling silver filigree piece to hang the Daisy.
