More Jewelry From the Hollow Forms Class at Metalwerx

For some reason I've misplaced the photo of the reverse of this piece so apologies to start.

Anyhoo, this lovely silver hollow form pendant was made by Laura who took my Hollow Form Fabrication class at Metalwerx in Waltham, Massachusetts. I'm a serious sucker for reticulated fine silver which gives this piece it's lunar surface. Prrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr! She has a huge lovely sheet of the stuff and from it cut out a disc and formed it into a dome to create the front plate you see. The hooks are attached to a finely made back plate so it can be hung on one of Laura's insanely sweet beaded cords like the one she made for her 1st piece in the class.

I had a great time with you ladies and hope you will be joining me again for my next exciting class at Metalwerx in the autumn - "Reclaimed/Recycled Materials in Jewelry". Details soon!!!
