Silversmithing ... how to?


I have taught myself silversmithing. Not entirely from scratch though... During my fine art education I learned how to weld steel and form it. Silversmithing is just a smaller form.

If you want to start smithing I recomend you to look at about 1000 videos on youtube on the subjekt. I have. Its so useful - everything you need to know is out there.

Silversmithing is my hobby, I cant knit or sew - Im much better with metal and wood. So I stick with that. I think.

The necklace is in my shop on Etsy. I used a bunch of techniques to make this. Hope you like it!

See more photos and buy it here: MONOtekst on Etsy.

Come to me in the silence of the night ;
     Come in the speaking silence of a dream ;
Come with soft rounded cheeks and eyes as bright
     As sunlight on a stream ;
        Come back in tears,
O memory, hope, love of finished years.
O dream how sweet, too sweet, too bitter sweet,
     Whose wakening should have been in Paradise,
Where souls brimfull of love abide and meet ;
     Where thirsting longing eyes
        Watch the slow door
That opening, letting in, lets out no more.
Yet come to me in dreams that I may live
     My very life again though cold in death :
Come back to me in dreams, that I may give
     Pulse for pulse, breath for breath :
        Speak low, lean low,
As long ago, my love, how long ago.
by Christina Rossetti

I also want to share my favorite artist these days:
Agnes Obel

Let's go tonight, to let the beast run wild
with the dogs and the cattle, let's go.
I know you've said, it's like a heel to the head,
or a girl in your bed and your arms.
For the butter on your bread, for the dying and the dead,
for your cheeks turning red, let's go.
Let's go tonight, let the beast run a mile,
with the dogs and the cattle, let's go. 

from the album Philharmonics

News news news :)

 Labradorite and silver nest ring. *sold*

Malachite silver ring, in my Etsy shop

 Banded agate ring, in my Etsy shop. 
Large freshwater pearl ring in my Etsy shop. 

Making rings is one of my favorites, actually I started making jewelry because I wanted rings, rings and rings... And there were no way I could afford the rings I wanted. 
So, I started making my own.

I tend to make all kind of rings, often I start with a hunt for stones: 

... next step is the design, I have to plan what to make and how Its going to be worn: 

...Then I have to make the ring or necklace from sheets of silver, wire and silver pebbles.
Its a great hobby, best I can imagine.
I have my work station in the livingroom, at the dining table. 
That way I can be where my family is and still do what I love.

A litte quote from one of my favorite poets at the end of this story:
A certain minor light may still
Leap incandescent

Out of kitchen table or chair
As if a celestial burning took
Possession of the most obtuse objects now and then ...
Sylvia Plath
