New toys

Today I played around with my new disc cutter and dapping set. These earrings are the result. I cut discs out of sheet copper using several blows with a hammer (and then wrestled the disc cutter apart). Then I hammered the discs to give them a bit of texture and domed them using the dapping set. I drilled holes with my Dremel and added some freshwater pearls. I expect the copper to patina over time, which will give a more subtle look.

Can you tell I’m ready for fall?
