Victorian Skeleton Key by GipsonDiamondJeweler Victorian Skeleton Key by GipsonDiamondJeweler
****SOLD****

Another key pendant. I never get tired of making these. Made entirely out of sterling silver wire.

As for the finish, first I gave it a high polish, then I dropped it in a tumbler with thousands of tiny metal bars in a liquid solution. After the tumbler was finished, it kept the polished finish, but it toned it down some. I like how it turned out.

thank you. It's actually funny that you commented and faved one of my keys at this moment though. I'm actually sitting at my desk sketching a new key design.

Do you solder the wire parts together?
Reply
:icongipsondiamondjeweler:
GipsonDiamondJeweler Featured By Owner May 17, 2009  Professional Artisan Crafter
Sure do. By my count there's about 19 different solder joints on this piece.

Goodness, quite the steady hand you have there.
Ive tried soldering.. We dont get along and I usually end up wearing the flux since I end up splattering it..

yeah it's a tricky process ^^; I first learned how to solder when I was 12. It took me four years to get good enough at it to start making jewelry.

I was pretty good at it back when I made computer chips in my women's technology class in junior high, but I recently purchased a sauder and wound up returning it, so terrible.
