Since I last worked on "A Forest". The whirl of the degree shows has passed and I finally got back to the bench today. Before I put the degree shows completely behind me, anyone interested in seeing the work produced by my own students can look backwards through my Flickr photostream from here:

So, back to my own bench and my own work and I hadn't quite taken stock of how far "A Forest" had come since I last worked on it. The chain is now completely set and finished:

 

A Forest (WIP) - 84

 

A Forest (WIP) - 83

 

A Forest (WIP) - 82

 

A Forest (WIP) - 81

 

The last two photographs show the back of the chain with the amber acorn detail and the little funnel which can be used for filling the perfume container which will be in the main pendant. The amber was carved from one of a number of lumps given to me years ago by a student who had collected it on a beach somewhere. It is not at all transparent, but I really like the streaky, opaque qualities of it.

 

I also managed to assemble and colour (patinate) the inner box:

 

A Forest (WIP) - 78

 

And have completed the manufacture of the perfume bottle and the tray which will hold it in the main body of the pendant:

 

A Forest (WIP) - 76

 

A Forest (WIP) - 71

 

In short, a very satisfying day!
