from this to this

Someone asked me the other day how I created the silver elements for my designs. The answer is I pretty much use the same technique over and over - starting with pieces of silver wire of varying thickness and using my trusty hammers, anvils, torch and pliers I heat, bend, beat, planish,  form and sculpt the elements I want to compliment the beads I have chosen for a particular design. I definitely have to be in the right frame of mind to do it - no distractions and time to work, otherwise I do not get them quite how I want them.
