I thought I would show the process of how I make the tiny elephant earrings.
First I doodle what I would like make and then draw it in illustrator an print out the design to the right size. I then cut out the design and stick it to the silver using spray mount.
Next I gave the elephants a rub down with emery paper. I placed them on a doming block to give them a slightly curved shape.
The little elephants are now ready to be made into earrings. With a small flame a little bit of solder an flux I added the backing posts.
The earrings then went for a tumble in the barrelling machine and then had a quick polish on the polishing mop to give them some extra shine! (Please excuse the bad photos)
