I think it’s a case of now or never with this post! I finished this project quite a while ago now and another deadline has come and gone without me posting any finished pieces.
So here we go:In the end I made both objects and jewellery (there are two other pieces than these but I feel these are the most successful).I am really pleased with these but working out the best way to make them was hell! If I’d had the time I would have liked to make more varied ‘corridors’ with steeper curves and different lengths of edges. I was also planning on blackening the insides of some.This is one of the necklaces, however it’s actually inspired by the bricks of MIMA rather than corridors. It’s simple but effective and I rather like wearing it myself.
After a very stressful finish to this project I managed to scrape a first! Woo!
Anyway, I’m off to Paris for a few days. I will try to be less useless once I’m back and post some examples from my Metal Folds project which finished earlier this week and will hopefully have my results for it as soon as I’m home.
These look great and I love the textured outsides – sounds like it’s a starting point that could go further.
I am hoping to develop them but I’m starting a new project that might be going in quite a different direction… we’ll see.
Fab photos 😄
Nice, How did you get the texture in the intermediate stage?
Thanks. All of the texturing was done by acid etching my photos onto the metal before folding it into the forms.
Great! I’ll try acid etching too….I thought it was laser..
