3xR 34: What to do with the Copper Discs

I have a handful of copper discs that I purchased years ago without really paying attention to what I was ordering. They were a little heavy for the earrings I was making at the time, but I figured I would hang on to them for enameling or something.

This week seemed like the perfect week to finally put them to use. I pulled out my dapping block and got to forming the discs into nice domes.

I rummaged around for a few bits of silver scrap and formed them as well.

A bit of soldering, filing, sanding, texturing, some patina, and a pair of ear wires later I had a lovely pair of mixed metal earrings to add to the Remnant Collection! 

For a look at what the other 3xR (reduce, recycle, reuse) artists are up to head over to the 3xR 2014 Flickr group!
