Drawing on inspiration from the samples I created I began to plan a statement neck piece.
This was to be the focal piece of the collection.
Because I had never worked on any thing like this before, I wanted to plan the piece first to see how it would work, so I started by making a model in card and copper.
I began by marking out the discs on the card.
Then cut these out...
...and domed them...
I used copper wire to create links to join the discs together.
I joined two samples that I had created in metal to gain a feel for the weight of the pieces.
I discovered that I really liked the way the card folded on itself when I domed it, and thought that it would be nice to recreate this effect in metal.
I think that I would make the discs smaller than the samples I had created above.
