amonite n amber by thebluekraken amonite n amber by thebluekraken
this was created for the recycling and reusing contest at # projecteducate.

recycling is usually my thing so why not... amonite, sterling and curcuit board in resin. The stone is the other half of an earlier amonite pendant i made like this, its been hanging out a while. perhaps whats different is a little of the design and all the metal is recycled sterling. I save all of my small metal scraps carefully organized and sheet was made from ingots i melted.

the wire i also made from another silver item, made my own draw plate from an old knife blank(i was short on tools at the time sooo need something? make it) i had by drilling small holes then using a pointed bur to make a several conical holes in stepped sizes to draw the wire down to size.
not quite satisfied with the photo but might amend it later.
