Copper and cake

Last weekend was a little bit odd.  I fluctuated between the cake and jewelry work to get a cake delivered for a birthday and also finish up a few copper pieces.

I ran some copper through the rolling mill with steel wire for a pair of earrings and I like the randomness of the pattern on them.  

This cuff started out as a fold forming project but I decided to keep going and form it over a stake. It was a lot of heating and hammering (and heating and hammering) and I'm really happy with it.  I love all of the little crevices all over it.

The cake was sort of a quick put together because I didn't have much notice or time to fit it in.  My general feeling about it is that it's just ok...the scale is a bit off and I had planned to do more with the basketball.  But  the time came to get it out the door and the birthday boy was happy and that's all that matters.
