ARTISTS PROJECT SERIES: “Love Heals” a necklace step-by-step by Lorena Angulo Part 2
Step 9: After your heart is dry you can now carve a design in it using a micro carving tool.
After the toggle is dry, we will carve it.
Step 16: To fire the pieces I used an SC2 kiln. I put the pieces on top of a kiln shelf and fire them following the package instructions.
Step 17: When the pieces are out of the kiln, I brushed them using a steel wire brush.
Now I will add a hammered texture to the frame using a ball head hammer and a steel bench block.
To finish the pieces, I will be using a tumbler to polish them and liver of sulfur to add dimension to the carving and textures.
Step 18: I string turquoise with red silk thread and the necklace is finished!
You can also just add a chain if that is the look you want.
Lorena Angulo: I am a Mexican artist currently living in San Antonio, Texas with my Husband and two wonderful kids. I am passionate about folk art and art in general. Working with metals such as silver, bronze and copper, enables me to transmit through the pieces I create this passion I have for my culture. My work is a big reflection of who I am , where I come from and my big love for my culture and traditions.
