Metal Work

Metal work! OK, this is way out of my realm, but if you don't break out once in a while...

These were made for a Wearable Altered Key Swap. You could make pins or pendants, but they had to be on the small side. These are all around 1.5" on the longest side.  The challenge was to to create a pin using a key as one of the elements. I'm short on found objects, so I sifted through all the metal elements I had in my stash.

Here's a list of some of the techniques & media I used:

embossed & punched metal blanks
hand-built charms & metal tassels
painted with Perfect Pearls powder
painted with Lumiere metallic paint
hand crafted a copper & resin object
resin work on 2 pins

purchased & found keys
purchased metal objects
aluminum & titanium jump rings
Perfect Pearls Powdered Mica
Lumiere paint
Glossy Accents
clear matt spray

metal punch
small brushes

Here's the eye candy.
