So I've seen a ton of faux taxidermy around lately, and I started thinking, why not scale it WAY down into a wearable size? I present to you my latest piece...and currently "my precious" because let me be honest, that stinker took a lot of time and effort.
I hand cut each tiny little piece out with my jeweler's saw, then there is the time consuming part of making sure each joint is perfectly flush, perfectly level, and then you flux the heck out of it and solder:)
I added a nice oxidized finish to his antlers for a more rustic look. I'm thinking I'll experiment with patinas and make one a nice green/blue color. Also I'm in the process of sketching out more plans for different animals. But those won't be done until later this summer, I only have so much time in a day.
Have a great weekend everyone, and I hope your Cinco De Mayo is filled with great food and margaritas:) Mine will be after our 15 mile run. Wish me luck!
