bug meets metals

sometimes when you’re stressed, anxious, and just plain tired of worrying about crap, you need to get your hands dirty and focus on something that doesn’t have to do with any of the things on your mind.

So I made these today. Not bad for two and a half hours of work. They can still be shined up a bit more and the color can be improved, and I will hook the wire around to make loops so that they can be earrings.

I may or may not have stolen the idea  from the earrings I rebloogled last night.


Just another photo of the bottle as it is now. 

The metal is cast bronze, the black top is obsidian (which still needs to be attached in some fashion)

and the tube is glass.

It remains at this stage until the rubber molds I am making of the bronze pieces is complete, and after that, I will be able to make multiple bottles.

And you know what that means?


And I would absolutely love to do so.
