almost a year ago, i learned how to make itty bitty teeeny weeeny hinges in silversmithing class. this particular design was created by my teacher then, so i am unable to sell it. since i slaved so hard over this one i think i'd perfer to keep it anyway! it really was interesting, and i wrote every step down (theres like 35) in my notebook so someday, i'll attempt to create another one. i am still surprised that i managed to pull off working with such tiny pieces of metal. the hinge still makes that little "snap" which means that i constructed it correctly ;o> i used this special wheel that suzy had to give it a brushed finish, over a mottled texture that i had given it prior. then a touch of 24k keum-boo.....ah yes, that's nice.
