Etched Metal Pin/Necklace



My nearest and dearest friends and I got together for another day of play and this time we were working from a book by Stephanie Lee and this is our version of her pin, we made a few changes and one of the main ones was it was a necklace, I don't wear pins. I did the etching all by myself without the trusty friends lurking and making sure I did it correctly, gosh is that spelt right? LOL I have to admit the etching is deep and feels fantastic to run the finger over. I darkened it with patina this made it look so much better. Above you can see the metal just after the etching was done and before it was folded into shape.
