If you do not read my entire post, you might assume I have made another piece of jewelry in a copper bezel.
What is unique about my finished piece is the "test-cap" I worked in.
In 2008, I invited artist Jane Wynn to teach a weekend workshop in Toronto. She taught me and my friends how to cut and solder copper pipe to create the most fabulous jewelry. I think I picked up this test cap the day I picked up copper pipe for the class. It has been waiting a long time for me to use it!
These are two of the copper pipe necklaces designed by Jane, which are in my own collection.
So, sitting on my table was this partially filled cap.
It needed something.
I applied this small piece of rub-on art to the first layer of resin in the cap.
Then I glued in this tiny charm.
I actually had ONE and only one copper bail in my stash. I glued this to the reverse to make the cap look professionally finished.
Not a plumbing part anymore!
I hope this post encourages you to look at inexpensive items to pour resin into.
