Copper Darling by sodacrush Copper Darling by sodacrush
A pretty little thing I made during the exam times (about a month ago) and forgot to post.. inspired by the lovely works of :iconlunarieen: and :iconkl-wiredream:

I really hope to make more things like this in the future :love:

I couldn't think of a name for it for so long, and kept calling it "darling" so that become its name :D

Copper and Polish Crystal

Hi! how did you make the spike at the bottom? is it two pieces soldered together? THanks!

Hi, sorry for the late reply - I think I replied your note a couple days ago but missed this. Ah, I'll try explaining again ^^; It's one piece, bent into half, then I use pliers to 'flatten' the bend as much as possible so there's no gaps between the wires. Then I solder the wires together, flooding the bend with much more solder than would normally be used.. It's not about just joining the pieces but to make them appear as one (if that make sense). For this I don't use chip solder, but wire solder, cutting maybe 3-4 pieces of 1/8" solder and lining them up along the groove between the two wires. Then heat with a blowtorch til the solder melts and flows--be careful not to melt the wires themselves. Direct solder flow with the flame--solder flows towards heat so if you want the solder to flow towards the bend instead of onto the two wire ends, heat the bend. After cooling, I file the bend into a spike. :) 

I really hope that made sense, I've been thinking that if I have time I should make a tutorial for this since people keep asking and I'm not sure I explain it very clearly ^^;

That's REALLY neat, it does have a LOTR feel to it. It doesn't really look that "made of wire look" that i feel wirework jewelry often have, you don't even notice that it's wire unless you look for it.

Thank you! I did try to take away that "wirework" feel by not using any small wires etc, though I'm still not sure which effect I prefer :)
