So I decided to make a brooch. The lampworked bead has been flat lapped and riveted with copper tubing to the sterling back. I textured the sterling sheet with a hammer whose face has been altered to provide a linen like texture on the metal. I added faux brass rivets.
I also decided to make my own pin back findings instead of using purchased components. And I fused fine silver components onto the Argentium silver.
I'm fairly happy with the outcome. I would do a few things differently the next time. My finishing technique needs to improve. But overall I'm happy with my new brooch.
I just purchased a new scarf for fall and it looks great on it!
