studio news - scrap necklace

silver recycling - this time I had fun creating a necklace !
pure silver....
Sticking most of the wires and loops into the melting silver nuggets, I used very little silver solder for this.
                            
It is a short collier around the neck....







                       

                           

...but  can be worn also as a long necklace, which is my favorite styling.




one of a kind - , sculptural and a little bit crazy, .....

little environmental tip

on sunday...when there is time for an exhaustive breakfast,........after having read the paper here is a little environmental tip...all you need is a sheet of newspaper....
(It is the same pattern you can use if you are on a hike, and need any vessel ....but maybe you rather have a vessel than a newspaper in your backpack then).










ready for the organic waste ...to be thrown into the compost bin.




I also make these out of advertising folders to take the used clumping cat litter to the garbage can, because this paper is more solid, but don´t use it for the compost bin .

have a great sunday!
