I was so fascinated with the gold plating machine, I had to use it!! I do love learning new techniques and playing with new toys! As I seem to only be creating rings and bangles at the moment I thought it was time to make another necklace. I cut 5 silver discs, hammered in textured lines, cleaned and polished each disc, and then the fun begins! The kit is a low voltage electricity power source, you clip the crocodile style on to the piece which sends a current through the metal, you then dip the brush in the solution and paint on the gold plating in layers. Now the thing to be aware is gold plating does rub off, so I thought about this during the design process and I just wanted a slight gold finish to sit in the groves. I didn’t really want to disguise the silver for what it is and I feel the way the gold will wear in use will make the design even more beautiful and the piece will continuously evolve.
