The Flower – empty.
Ultimately, it will have a titanium ring in it.
I made some cardboard designs and I eventually settled on this one.
I draw some different shapes and then when I choose one, I make it in metal and then draw the next four from that template.
Then I stick the cut out cardboard shapes inside and see if I like the flower.
I quite liked the fold over to the middle bit when they closed.
Decision jpg, make in metal now or make another cardboard cut out?
I made them in metal.
I cut out a pattern in the front and then bent them inwards.
Afterwards, I screwed them down from the other side so that the brass has the thread, because copper and silver suck at keeping threads.
I drew out a design.
So I cut it out of a thin strip of titanium that I had rolled down to 0.5 mm.
Next is to cut four more and to finish them to blue.
The screws at the bottom will get gem nuts and the copper I think I am going to chemically colour .
I’d like the copper to have a bit more say.
