Introduction: Copper Leaf Pendant

About: Awesome Gear I've designed myself.

This pendant is cut from the same piece of copper pipe as my Copper Rocket Pendant.

I first embossed the lines by laying a needle over the copper and hammering it. I then cut it out and soldered a strip of copper on the back. I looped the stem for the jump ring. There is no coating on it.

    2) This work is awesome. I love it, This is going to be my first project, so I'm looking forward to it
    3) How did you cut it out? Hacksaw? And I suppose you sanded the edges afterwards, right?
    4) You're one awesome person, Mrballeng, this and the skeleton key are some of the best things, when you look at the beauty/difficulty to make ratio.
    5) There is NO POINT 5
    6) Did you hammer the lines in before or after? Which would be easier?

    I used metal shears to cut it out. I sanded the edges with a file. The lines were hammered in after cutting but before filing. Thanks!

    I'm making this for my girlfriend to give to her on Valentin's day. I've got it all figured out save for how to make the stem / jump ring. Any tips?

    I think he did a great job. I'm glad he tried his hand at it.

    Check out my basketball tie tack or embossed keychain monster. I used the same method there.

    Amazing how you made you stuff with metal. I just started to learn how to create metal jewelry, and I love to try to match stuff like yours.

    Could you do the same thing with some silver and a paperclip?

    If your going to use super spendy silver why not spring for the silver wire too? Go the whole nine yards.

    I've never worked with silver but I bet it would work just fine.

    I'm not sure exactly but I would compare it to the thickness of a quarter.
