Saw stories

Dharma Necklace

Back in January, I was working on some new techniques to pump up my jewelry skills. I’d tackled the jewelers saw and was busily cutting out components for use in my work. I had tried a new technique called etching to raise a pattern on a piece of copper sheet metal, and I laboriously sawed around the pattern, then oxidized it, filed the edges, and worked to make it into pendant. I’ve probably put over two hours, all told, into this one pendant, but I’m really happy with how it came out, and I’ve learned quite a bit through the production. Look for more of these types of pieces – more work with the saw, with soldering, etching, and other techniques!
