Christa Hammer-Hand!

I tried my hand at hammering metal a couple of weeks ago and this is what I created!

I had to form the copper wire into the design first and then lay it on my pounding thingy (can't remember the technical term) and hammer away!
It was very fun, until I hammered one of my fingers... OUCH!!!
I began to fancy that I was getting good at this until I tried to design a bird and it ended up looking like...
well, not a bird.
Maybe I'll show you that one later ;-D

You like?!

I went searching through your slideshow just now, trying to find more such pounded pretties, and discovered something ELSE I may have to have. (I left a comment there.) Where's the price list? ;-D

How did you post a comment on my slideshow???! Weird! My price list is being re-vamped right now as I am getting my shop ready. Which one were you intrigued by?
