a silver fertility charm



do you guys remember this piece? i carved out the wax in the summer so i could have a smaller, sterling silver version of my bronze/brass fertility charms. i eventually cast it, cleaned it, and patinated (stained the silver with a chemical) the back. i like the ball burred texture compared to the smooth back of my original, and it makes it more resistant to fingerprints which is always a plus.


i hate taking photos of high polished work. you can always see the camera. argh...

lol, i like the reflection. You're right though, it's impossible to take a decent pic of anything with mirror finish.
