Got quite a lot of work done on "A Forest" today:

 

A Forest (WIP) - 32

 

This has easily been one of the most challenging silver-iron soldering exercises!

I wanted a large bullet cabochon for the bottom of the piece, to make into an "acorn" but my stone-dealer had nothing in stock and while I could have asked her to get one cut for me, I don't really have the time, so I decided to make my own by milling one in hardwood...

 

A Forest (WIP) - 28

 

The sharp-eyed among you will have noticed that it is being milled from Walnut, a kind of transgenic acorn!

Here's the cap, waiting to be cast:

 

A Forest (WIP) - 29

 

Not much more to say as 1) My main computer won't boot up and 2) I'm very tired!
