The Deathly Hallow

I tried carving in wax today. I can't draw a round circle even when using a compass.

I made a mold from Amazing Mold Putty then cast the pendent in pewter.

Things didn't go perfectly but I was having fun so perfection wasn't a concern.

Rings from wire

My first attempt at making a ring. It's a start. I got to play with a butane torch, a ring mandrel, a pickle pot, and a leather mallet! The ring on the left is brass and the one on the right is copper. I have some silver wire too but I put it someplace where it wouldn't get lost - I just don't remember where that was. Next week I'm going to try sand casting a really big ring!
