....and this jumble
... to this
He's a happy man.
While he worked all evening in the studio I was keeping him company and doing some organizing and decided to work on a copper fold formed piece. First I cut a piece of copper about 1.5 x 4 inches, slipped it in the vise to fold in half then hammered the fold, annealed and repeated several times. Then the pod was opened. The copper has a purplish look after annealing.
Then I decided it needed to be torn apart, I used metal shears to cut parts open on the front side and used round nose pliers to curl back the cut areas. I buffed a little and will think about what to add, it will make an interesting necklace.
