After a quick polish, here are some of the pendants. I still have to clean them up a bit around the faux riviets. I have another batch in the kiln right now. I won't get to see them until tomorrow night.
The pendant on the left still needs some work. I drilled three small holes down the side so I can rivet on some washers....mixing ancient and industrial. As I drive to work each day I go through an old industrial section of Cleveland. There are sections of elevated rail for trains to bring in raw materials. I am constantly looking at the riveting on the supports. I really want to get out and take some pics but it's not a good neighborhood. The pendant on the upper right will be used as a base for a glass bead.
All in all the tear-aways came out nicely. I do think I want to try etching some copper plates with these designs so I will have something with a slightly deeper cut.
