Chasing and Repousse’ & Blog Additions

I’m hard at work learning some useful new techniques.   I see Chasing as a new route to texturing and design since I don’t own or have access to a rolling mill.   Repousse’ will add dimension and texture to pieces for an entirely new look.  Right now I’m doing pieces in copper.   I’ve also discovered some new texturing wheels that give a sandblasted look.  Upcoming is a textured hand with chasing and repousse’.

I have part of a pendant completed and as soon as I can get the stone bezel set and the piece cleaned up and polished, I’ll take some photos and post my results.   I’m trying to get several pieces together for pictures so I don’t have to set up everything multiple times.
