La Vida Pendant

I took a class with my favorite teacher, Linda Twohill at Beads N Stitches in Hicksville, NY yesterday where we played with brass and copper. We drilled, etched, riveted, domed, stamped, cut and made several pieces. My favorite part of any class with Linda is using her awesome tools. This was my favorite piece. There is a little cup for holding a magic crystal or something interesting. It's about the size of a quarter. It's also pretty obvious that I am not well practiced in stamping on metal, but I kind of liked the funky way it came out nevertheless.

As much as I enjoy using the torch, cold connections are a lot of fun. I still need a lot more practice using rivets and grommets/eyelets on metal.
