Here is Garden Path II:
This is her predecessor (with earrings), so you can see the variations...
I was asked to use different colored stones which were a bit larger, but keep the piece the same overall size. I was also asked to do a different sort of "leaf", and no earrings were requested.
Here's some pictures of the work as it was in process...
|Using previous instructions from my first Garden Path,|
I cut heavy 1/2 round wire to size.
|The Amazonite stones that had been selected, laid out in order.|
|Working on the leaves, the left is a rough-cut, the right is shaped/formed.|
|Leaves with their stems soldered in place.|
|Ready to shape some of the heavy wire.|
|Grinding down the heavy wire to form a tight solder joint.|
|She's taking shape.|
|Soldering the last piece of heavy wire in place.|
|Main Body soldered together.|
|Leaves soldered in place, Bezels created.|
|Bezels soldered in place, ready to set the stones.|
|Stones set, ready for her sanding & polishing, then for a chain.|
Here she is again, in final form...
