Beautiful old silverware has found a place in my jewelry making corner. Here we have mid-century silver plate that is excellent for cutting into new shapes because the core is nickle, think “German silver”, it is seamless.
Stamped Penny Earrings
Laugh Loud / Smile Wide – Hand stamped on heads up side of these shinny copper pennies. I’ve seen these done before and always wanted to give them a try. How fun is it to decide what to stamp?
If you do stamping at all, you should give this a try. One of my kids thought “Worthless” was a good idea. LOL, at least the materials are only pennies.
The wires are my creations. I use RIO GRANDE’S excellent half hard 20g silver filled wire for most of my earring findings. It’s easy to shape and holds a shape without need for tumbling or hammering.
