Shaped Silver Pendant And Earrings DIY Tutorial

Foldforming is a technique that lets you turn a flat sheet of metal into a three dimensional object. This way of manipulating sheet metal can also add a lot of texture to it. In this tutorial we will fold a piece of metal sheet many times to give it a eye catching texture. We will add to this texture with stamped designs intermixed with the folds. Once finished with the textured metal sheet we will cut out and shape a pair of round cabochons and a tear-shaped one. The cabochons will then be framed in sterling silver using a combination bezel-tab setting for a spectacular set of earrings and pendant. The step-by-step instructions includes how to apply and preserve colored patinas for a different look on the copper cabochons. This tutorial is an instant downloading PDF file. It has 16 pages, 54 photos and life size template of all the components. For intermediate skill students.

Twig Circles Stud Earrings with Foldformed Leaves DIY PDF Digital tutorial

I wanted a pair of stud earrings that where small enough to have some type of metal or beaded dangles. One of the ideas I had, was making some small “organic” element without having to cast from “live” plants. Experimenting to make these “twigs” was fun, and opened a whole new set of ideas to try out. Like using the “twigs” with foldformed copper leaves dangles. The metal leaves could be enameled or treated with colored patinas. The twig circles can also be used with lampwork drops, head pins with or without threaded beads. So if you have off-mandrel drops or glass head pins this is the project for you!
