A few weeks ago I came across some more "Road Kill." Now I have more designs to add to this series. Unlike the jeweler I heard speak at an art conference years ago, I don't have to worry about the "smell." He made beautiful jewelry out of the bones of real road kill.
My latest addition to this collection came in the form of beer caps that had been run over. (The local CVS is next to a beer store.)
The latest acquisitions are a "Bud Light" cap and a "Busch Light" cap. (At least the beer drinkers around here are trying to save calories.) Once again I made a mold of the pieces. So far I've only made a pair of earrings out of the Bud Light cap. I really like them and thought about keeping them for myself. (But I just can't keep it all....... although I am due for a new pair of earrings.)
Top piece is the Bud Light and the bottom cap is the Busch Light.
The mold retained a little of the folded over feel.
The files I mentioned in yesterday's post made it easy to sand the inside curve.
