New hand-made silver Pendants.


So this is a little pendant, that me and my dad made from melted down silver. I moulded it from an original skull bead, into a resin clay. I melted the metal in a little crucible over a fire outside and poured it in the mold and voila! I really wouldn't of been able to do it without my dad who use to be a scientist and metal worker. I am so pleased with it, as I thought it would never work. Believe me the fire was ridiculously hot and i hate things that are hot, i always manage to burn myself, the process was really fun and exciting. I am still working on making the rings neater and a bit more professional...This one pendant took me an entire day to sand and clean. 
These won't be on sale in Velvet Feather....but they will be on sale in RubyRaelove, i know i know i deleted it the other day but the other night i was wide awake at 3 am and i kind of missed that little shop, I decided to re-open it. I promise to get back to my old making and creating style. As we speak I am surrounded by turquoise beads, cut leather and silver. So watch this space. 
Thank you all for your really lovely words about yesterday post, it was 2 am i felt lost with what i was doing with myself so i wrote a letter virtually giving myself a kick up the bum!
