I took a Metal Smiting/Jewelry class a few years back
(2006-2008?) at the Lakeland Community College I attended in Ohio... I really fell in love with the craft, I found I excelled at it more so than other things... But the downside is after leaving the school I did not have the funds nor the supplies to continue such endeavors.. Now that I am trying to get into a Art school here in Vienna... which is proving itself more difficult than previously thought... I find that they
don't teach metal smiting here, which is quite the bummer! I hope to be able to work with metals again (yes they are expensive)I guess the only way to do so is to wait till I hit the lotto! LOL
But until then.. I will just have fond memories of the class
I took years back...
This piece is done with a technique called embossing(?)
If my memory serves me correctly... This piece is made of
Brass, and there is a tiny little white moon stone in the
middle. I borrowed the symbol out of a book of Hindu
Tantra that I *borrowed* from a local cafe's bookshelf..
The pictures giving me inspiration and without really
reading anything about it I felt an Instant connection,
But since I do Yoga and Meditation I guess it is all
interconnected really... It is still one of my favorite pieces
I have made in the class.. enjoy!
