3xR 39, 40, and 41: Paisley!

I'm catching up and jumping ahead this week with a few paisley pieces!

I started with a pile of copper scrap, some Eyelet Lace scrap, an old silver ring, and little bits of silver wire and bezel. First I cut out some copper paisleys, soldered down the Eyelet scrap, and cleaned up the edges.

After that I melted the bits of silver into balls and soldered them down. I used the old silver ring to make a pin for the large brooch and some recycled silver wire to create the pin and posts for the other pieces.  A little patina and some wax and I was finished!

What do you think? I think I see more paisleys in my future.

Thanks for reading!
