Texturing Metal

Texturing Metal

I love working with metal and just finished making the little copper piece shown here.  I made it by cutting out two copper squares, filing them, and then soldering them together.  I textured the smaller square using the ball end of my ball peen hammer (far left) which leaves nice little dents.  I then added lines to the larger square using the chasing tools (on the right) and chasing hammer.  The copper was bright in color but I darkened it to add a richness and make the marks more noticeable.

I think I will make a bracelet using this copper piece.  I am envisioning something kind of chunky with larger beads.  Purple perhaps…
