I have added three new air-chased copper pendants to my online shop recently. Each piece has been individually hand forged using air-chasing and texturing techniques in my home studio in Stamford, Lincolnshire.
My previous air-chased pieces have all been on a waxed cotton cord. Feedback from customers and stockists is that a ready made necklace or chain is preferred to cotton cords so I will be adding more of these to the new pieces. I am going to play with a few more ideas for the chains and update existing pendant listings to offer the option of the torc necklace on pieces already in the shop.
I will of course still offer the option of waxed cotton cords or ready-made organza necklaces for anyone who would prefer those.

I am really enjoying the craft of air-chasing copper.

Work in Progress… Copper Pipe Cuffs
After a wonderful trip to India I am back to my bench and working on several new pieces for the June Artists Market at Stamford Arts Centre and for my display cabinet at Art in the Heart and Whisby Nature Park.
What better way to get back into the swing of things than a bit of air chasing fun 🙂
I made four new copper cuffs last week. This time I have used a narrower copper tubes, 8mm. The new cuffs are light and quite dainty compared to the “Fantasy” Copper pipe cuff I made for last year’s ESC Artists exhibition. I will make more of those but I think a variety of styles is always good.
