On the bench today.

I revisited one of my pieces today.
Love Letters Written by Moonlight by Cari-Jane Hakes
I gave it a slightly larger back plate made out of 0.6mm thick sterling silver sheet.

I held my breath as I punched out these letters, mindful of the fact that one mis-strike would render my work worthless.

I added a bit of texture to the edges to give it the character of a well read, folded and re-folded letter.

I really adore this Moon Brooch Series and feel like I could keep adding to it for years to come.
