Homage to Calder, Part 2

Finished up the Calder piece today:




Hand forged steel.  This took FOREVER to clean, but it was worth it!  Am looking forward to doing more work with steel.  It challenges me in all the good ways.



Hand forged steel earrings.  I know they look a little - phallic, but honestly? I love the shape of these.  Hah, what does that say about me?  Phbbbbbt.

Have a great rest of the day,
Juliette xoxo

    Very cool, Juliette. I approve. hehe
    But that looks like very heavy steel - must take some real muscle to flatten it!

    1. Lela, thank you!! It's 12 gauge, and took a while to flatten it - used my bench vise's anvil and the heaviest hammer I had!
