I wanted to try something different, something more challenging, and an obsession with all things ... ungulate, resulted in this project.
First I sawed the deer head out of patterned sterling silver sheet, and filed the edges, (cleaned up my mistakes).
I realized that the sheet would have to be backed with something to make it more durable.
I don't like "delicate" or flimsy jewelry
I sawed out another piece of sterling to frame the first and then riveted the two together.
I really like it!
