This pendant is made with sterling broom cast pieces and has a matte finish. I selected pieces that created a sense of upward movement and would fit together well in order to try to make it easier to solder them to each other and the backplate. The broom castings take a lot of time to arrange and solder, but I really like the outcome.
These turquoise and sterling earrings have copper rivets and have a matte finish. I used a chasing tool to add texture to the sterling and oxidized it to bring out the contrast a bit.
