Snakes and Bangles

 Working on variations on the bangle design and working out the details of a tutorial for it.

Snake rings were for Year of Jewelry week 4 theme "Wild and Wicked". I experimented with ways to manipulate metal with the shaping of the head and filing the tail end down to a snakey point.

  3. Thank you Galadryl!

    Heike,
    I used a center punch that I purchased from riogrande http://www.riogrande.com/MemberArea/ProductPage.aspx?assetname=118116&page=GRID&free_text=center+punch
    It is for the purposes of making an indentation to get a drill started, but it makes cute eyes:)
