Jewelry Projects

Occasionally I'll make a run of jewelry for presents and to sell.  Here are a couple of different projects that I've done in the past several years. 

Copper Mug

Some time ago I was asked if I might be able to make a set of Moscow Mule copper mugs.  A quick google search for what that actually meant told me that yeah I would probably be able to handle that.  The actual order for the set fell through, but I figured I might as well make a prototype anyway.

Copper and Steel Floor Lamp

I have been trying to do more lighting recently.  This piece grew out of a desire to use big copper bowl as a lampshade, and a need for a light over my dinner table in my apartment.  I'm really happy with the final product, it was a long build but I learned a lot about wiring, welding, and just how much time it takes to raise a big copper bowl like that.
