Simply and fun, a reproduction of an earring I saw at a store, best part about making your own metal projects is you can just make stuff at home if you see something you like. Brass with silver posts.
Looks great! I am still super impressed with how this came out. Looks even better on the bike. More here.
This thing came out so nice! I used paint marker masks, acid etching, and a dark black patina to really bring out the look on this. I really enjoyed making this, each step was slow and deliberate, from cutting the masks with a razor blade, to painting on the paint marker, to acid etching, to patina, each step was oddly satisfying. The final results are really nice.
I learned from a customer that a badge I had made for them years ago suffered a horrible road injury and was lost, so this is a replacement. I changed it up a bit this time adding some rivets for extra strength, and using stainless steel as a backing instead of nickle, hopefully the additional strength will mean that this new badge can withstand anything the road can throw at it.
