Silver nuggets!

Thats next!
I heat the silver scrap in the mold with my brazing torch to the melting point.

The charcoal is saving the generated heat very well!

At this point it is possible to shape the little liquid pure silver ball for seconds.....

After solidification the structure of the charcoal is visible on the back.

Beautybath in alum, after soldering silver jump rings onto the nuggets. be continued.....

My creative Space....

Silver recycling!
When I ´m crafting my silver caps, wires and closures some scrap piles up.

I will try to make some "Silver Nuggets" out of it!

This is a piece of charcoal I own for many years.....(what easily can be seen..)

I use carving tools to get a mold . Afterwards the silver scrap will be melted in it.

That´s all for now time I will show the melting process ..

...and of course the finished products..( premised I was successful !)

new earrings


Pink Orange.... a vibrant combination . The stud pellets are made from in charcoal molten silver scrap! (have to show this sometime..)

Silver and Gold!
golden glass beads always are tricky ! They often are not abrasion-proof !
These messing colored are!
Bought from one of my favorite Bead-Shop . The owner Heidi Neuwirth is really an expert in all kinds of beads, esp. czech glass beads!

From another shop I had the opportunity to get tiny tiny tiny golden beads, have to put them to the proof, and create something, ....stay tuned for the results.....
