Aaaaaaargh!

I am SO annoyed. I had just finished cleaning and polishing these rings:

 

Beneath The Skin (WIP) 68 when I managed to completely lose the one on the right with the heart. I have turned the workshop upside-down and can't find it. It is getting to the point where I would actually be quicker making another! These rings are part of my collection…

Further Forward

Finally got the colouring of the Japanese alloys working, so can now start on making the components of the piece. 

 

Beneath The Skin (WIP) 60

These hearts are made from high-purity Copper, with 25/75 Ag/Cu fused to the surface, then press-formed. The idea is that on colouring in Rokusho, the copper will turn a deep red and the shakudo will go a…

Digital Mills And Press Forms

Continuing with the "Beneath the Skin" work, all that messing around with the digital scanner and the Polymer Clay models was to give me a press-forming die, of which I now have two, one with the heart at 25mm and 5.6mm deep...

Too Much To Think About

Working on my new project, the customised tattoo machine and associated jewellery pieces, "Beneath the Skin". This project involves a collaboration between me, a tattoo artist in the US, an Argentinian maker of tattoo machines and a metallurgist in Sheffield! It is going to be exhibited as part of the "Galvanize Sheffield" exhibition. 

 

This week, I've been converting the drawings into 3D forms by various manual and digital means. The original drawings from…
