I spent a lot time this winter making displays which is working against me now because I am playing catch up on jewelry making. I don’t think I will regret making them however and might make some more. This is a rolled sheet of steel that I cut out with a plasma cutter, grinded, welded a small bar to the back for anti-theft reasons and put an aged copper finish on. I made three of these. Attached are my letter charms which I hand make on at a time. They are a big seller as a token item at shows in the summer.
I worked on my displays at a good friends house because his shop is heated. I was cracking up because he was making a new skid steer bucket and the material for the bucket was thinner than my display material. (Which was so heavy I could hardly unload the sheets of the truck.) He asked me what the heck I was making with such thick material and if it had to be bomb proof or what and I said no….just necklace displays…..He thought I was crazy. Which is true but they look really cool.
