May - Give-A-Way is here

MAY GIVE-A-WAY IS NOW CLOSED

THE WINNER IS :  BEADHEN   -

Yes I braved the rain and cold and visited the studio and picked out something for this months give-a-way

Here it is -  an etched and dapped copper zentangle pendant with a dichroic glass center

Its approximately 1-3/4" in diameter -  I etched using the staz-on-stamp and using my zentangle rubber stamps for the design I etched it in ferric chloride , cleaned and then cut a center circle and then dapped the circle to give it some depth.  I soldered a back to hold the dichroic glass which I set with clear resin . and the copper is sealed with a clear resin.

  18. What a great idea to set the glass with resin and the seal should keep the copper nice and bright. Lovely design, thanks for sharing.
