Earlier this week, I wrote about my first attempts with the jeweller’s saw, riveting and patinating. The result was a little copper heart pendant – sundered and black, with all the dents and scars that life delivers.
About the same time, I came across Dwyn Tomlinson’s new lampwork series of Sundered Hearts. The pre-Christmas present to myself shown here is one of her lovely pieces in dark butterscotch with rivers of blue throughout. I paired this glass heart with brown and blue Boro lampwork teardrops from BeadFX and my remaining length of Shannon LeVart’s wonderful handmade copper chain.
In an earlier post entitled Lilith’s Vine, I talked about one of Dwyn’s other pieces – a glowing chrysalis – that I strung with Boro beads, Dwyn’s lampwork whorls and recycled sari silk along with more of Shannon’s chain.
By the way, Dwyn has blogged a number of articles about taking great jewellery photographs. I need to get a macro lens and go re-read them.
