Today I have been working on my new granulation collection some more.
I have finished cleaning up the base plates, made the silver and gold granulations and formed the pieces. I really enjoy making granulations. That point where you can see the metal become liquid and pull in on itself is like magic. I normally work in silver, but today I have also made some granulations in 22 ct gold, oh my it is pretty! The colour is so warm and buttery, I love the contrast next to the silver.
For this collection I have made a pair of drop earrings with a stud back, a brooch, a necklace and a ring. I have also been working on a pair of cufflinks, but I’m not sure if I will get them completed in time for the delivery of my pieces tomorrow. I can always add to the collection though so I will carry on working on them.
Tomorrow I will solder the granulations to the pieces and colour them … I can’t wait to see everything finished!
