Today I had a private workshop with one student who was eager to try electro forming. She brought along some semi precious stones, a rose quartz crystal and some silver pendants.
We first organised some copper texture to add to her doughnut and triangle pendants.
Then we worked on a fine silver pendant. We added a fractured rose quartz crystal that fitted a cut out portion of the silver pendant. Although electroforming over a pure silver pendant was a bit strange but, as the copper layer over the silver would be very thin we decided that we could remove the copper layer in some areas.
This is the result. The copper layer over the silver was removed with a dremel. The silver and copper were oxidised with Liver of Sulphur. The high spots of the copper were burnished. I think it looks neat.
This was a pretty ordinary turquoise foil glass bead. it was transformed by adding the copper electroforming and adding the other portion of the fractured crystal.
