Workbench Wednesday

Kim of Red Dirt Farm and Studio


On the workbench this week.

Playing with copper and silver for new jewelry designs.


Copper with patina, silver star.


Embossing on copper


 Patina, embossing surface design


Jellyfish and starfish.

And a few hearts.


Copper + silver + flame – what more could a girl ask for?

The copper and silver will be incorporated with other elements and will become…

I’ll share the progress later.

See you later, Bye!

  1. Hi Kim, can’t wait to see what it becomes~ looks enticing!


    1. Hi Melissa, I was just thinking about you. I’m not completely sure of the final outcome either, but that often is the way I work. Even when I plan, plan, plan, in the end rarely is it what I thought it would be. I just have to roll with it. xo Kim

    I LOVE copper with a great patina. Beautiful.


    1. Hello there famous Sofie, thanks for the compliments and for stopping by for a read. I need to come by one of these weekends and see you. Hope you are enjoying all the snow. πŸ™‚


  3. Beautiful! Learning to make jewelry is on my “someday” list. πŸ™‚


    1. Staci – Thank you for the kindess. We need to plan a bootcamp and teach other our trades. Maybe the coop girls would like to teach me chickens 101 too. πŸ™‚

    Those new designs look stunning. Sarah x


    1. Thank you Sarah – I’ve tried leaving messages on your blog, I seem to be having techno difficulties.


  5. Debra says:

    I haven’t gotten to using flames yet…
    I LOVE your designs and colors!!!


    1. Thanks Debra. The flames can only burn you! Ha. When I first started working with glass, all those years ago, I was so afraid of getting cut. Which was so ridiculous, as I had worked with metal for years, welding and my plasma cutter to cut the metal. I got burns and cuts everyday – I don’t know why I thought a glass cut could be any worse. Sewing is certainly safer. I love learning new techniques, and I think you are the same way. We jump when we are ready. xo Kim
