I thought I would share some press formed pendants with you. I will explained what this involves.
This my 10 ton hydraulic press
First you need to draw on an acrylic sheet the shape you want your pendant to be. Once you have got your design and pierced it out you then make a sandwich of a piece of steel then hard urethane then the acyclic with the cut out a picec of sheet silver next a soft piece of urethane then another piece of steel. Now place the sandwich in the press and squeeze.
These are the results. I do need to do some more sanding but I wanted to show you.
