Deryn Mentock's Summer Jewelry Challenge: Project #1

One of my favorite jewelry artists, Deryn Mentock, has issued a jewelry challenge for this summer. We will be working, project by project, through Mary Hettmansperger's book, Wrap, fold, Stitch & Rivet (see picture). I have decided to take the challenge! This will give me some jewelry projects to work on between a couple of big mosaic projects coming up.

So here it is: My first project! This is the "Stacked Spinner Necklace". I really enjoyed the process with this piece, and am learning more and more about working with metals. I used brass for the base, copper, aluminum mesh and copper mesh for the raw materials, and I am really happy with how it turned out.

On to the next project!

Wasn't this fun?! Love the colors in your finished piece. I am looking forward to seeing your earrings (project 2), but you are really going to have fun on project 3!
