Class Project - Copper Leaves

Last weekend I took a metalworking class where we learned several techniques for working with copper. Our class project was to create copper leaves. We learned how to bend, texture, cut, form, soften, and harden the metal. Many of the techniques I already knew, but it was fun to spend time with other jewelry enthusiasts and learn new tips and tricks from the other students and teacher.

Here are the leaves I created in class while practicing the techniques:

After class, I was in such a jewelry making mood, I came home and made this cuff bracelet
(soon to be in my shop as soon as it's finished)
