A *NEW* Etched Sparrow

Wednesday, September 22, 2010

I Love Etching Metal. One of the things that I have recently learned over the last year and a half on my quest to manipulate metal as many ways as I can. I just added this NEW Sparrow With Heart Necklace to my shop today. I Love the way that it turned out. The etching process is not always 100 percent fool proof so I always hold my breathe and hope that the piece of silver that I etch is going to turn out like expected, especially when I am using a large piece of Sterling Silver, it can be expensive. It usually takes anywhere from 2-4 hours to complete for each piece and that is just the etching process, not the preping, cutting, sanding, finishing etc. But..I love the way that the pieces turn out, artsy and unique. I like putting my own twist on things too like adding a copper forged heart or adding the etched piece of silver to another piece, kind of mix it up. I thought Id share this new cute necklace with you , if you want to see more of this necklace just click here http://www.etsy.com/listing/57044229/sterling-silver-etched-sparrow-and
