Back to Electroforming

After the Gathering last year, where I sold more electroformed beads and vessels than anything else, I vowed to really focus on that when I got home. Then I totally dropped that ball while working on some other ideas. Now I'm back to metal and having a blast.

This week I've tried to keep something in the bath everyday. After the new liver of sulfur arrived, I've gotten the patinas done and have lots of pics to show.

Here is an interesting new shape I've been toying with. It's a seed pod shape, sort of like an acorn, done off the end of the mandrel so that the hole doesn't go completely through. Stay tuned for more variations.
