Heathers Yellow Gold, Aquamarine, Yellow Sapphire and Yellow Pearl Jewellery Suite, Part 8
Part 8: Turning Teeth Into Gold!!!
In this image you can see Heather’s gold pendant being made. You can see the lovely hollow pillow-type oval form being annealed at my soldering station. By heating the metal up you can make it more malleable to work with and these pieces are getting ready to be hydraulic pressed again to achieve a ‘deeper’ shape.
Now looking a this picture you would say that theres nothing unusual about it…until you remember that the gold for this piece has come from a box of gold teeth!!!! You can see one of the gold teeth at the bottom of the image – and it took quite a few of the teeth to make this piece.
Pretty crazy to think that you can recycle this ‘scrap’ metal and make something truly beautiful out of it!!
Its not everyday you get to work on a challenign job like this!!!!!
