I couldn't create a collection of these in one day. I just add to it, little by little.
Here, I've begun to create a ship's wheel in brass. I'm going to carve it from the thick metal. First I draw a sketch, then transfer that to tracing paper.
It would be easier, of course, to use a charm from a commercial jewelry suppply house. Many jewelers do that. But that has no appeal to me. If I put my name on it, I want it to be from my own hands.
It takes longer, this way. I work on a new piece a little bit, day by day. Eventually, I'll have a collection.
