Metal Etching


This is my first attempt at metal etching - another addictive technique. I recently bought a book called Semiprecious Salvage Its a great resource for making jewellery with found objects and some great techniques too. I havn't been able to put the book down since I got it and headed off to Dublin on Tuesday with a list of items to buy and try.


Here is my first attempt. I have another few in a bowl waiting to be released :-). Hope you like it and are inspired to try the same.
