    Default The locket

    I've finally made the locket. I tried soldering hinges onto it but they were so tiny that I ended up in a right mess. I've got to re-do the bail as it doesn't quite hang right but apart from that it's more or less done. Not sure it was worth all the effort though as it took me about 8 hours including making the dye for the hydraulic press. I suppose if I made it again I'd do it quicker. The cost of the silver and gold was quite expensive as well as it's quite large. Please let me know whether you think it was worth the effort as I'm charging quite a lot for it and I'm not sure whether the person will like it.

    Oh thats lovely, it looks thick and yet delicate and i can easily see it taking 8 hours and will be well worth the price tag i am sure.

    Ooh Carole it is fabulous!

    Can we see a pic of the back? Is the back part smaller than the front? How is the bail attached? (sorry, so many questions)

    I spent a good few hours on Ganoksin looKing at the pendant tutorial and watching Luis Moreno's hinge video tutorials for different perspectives. I can see HOW things are done, but it's just taking that step and having a go at it, like you have. Well done!
