Cast Silver and Copper Pendants

This was my first time casting metal, and my first time soldering, so I had a lot to learn on this project. I used direct casting which is a fairly simple process to cast the silver components, I then soldered posts onto the silver pieces to elevate them from the copper back plates. I didn’t know much about patina, so the finish of the pieces is really simple, but that is part of the learning curve. Fred Kaems Pendants Pendants in progress Fred Kaems pendants 2
