Handmade for Sticks and Stones Collection by Chiomas Charm Jewelry
Item Description: Handmade sterling silver brooch. The brooch is created by taking 22 gauge sterling silver sheet metal and sawing out a 1 1/2 by 1 1/2 inch square. To create the boarder I twisted 16 gauge sterling silver wire together, hammered it and sawed out equal pieces. In between each piece a melted ball of silver. The puff ball girl is also sawed from 22 gauge sterling silver sheet metal. All of the components are soldered on top and then the brooch components soldered onto the back. The piece is then tumbled to pre-polish. A liver of sulfur solution is applied to the puff ball girl to oxidize (blacken) her. The piece is tumbled again. The puff ball girl is covered with renaissance wax to preserve her color and the entire piece is hand polished to a high shine.
