When it comes to opinions my Muse has a mind of her own.
April Fools! What you're seeing is actually a bowl of pearls on a hand forged chain. If you're curious to know how this breakfast of champions was created, read on.
To make 'Cheerios' I used 10, 12, and 16 gage gold fill wire. I wrapped the wire on a mandril to form a coil and placed the coil in a vice. Then I used my foredom (think dremel tool on steroids) equipped with a wafer thin aluminum oxide cut off-disc to slice the coil into rings. One can also use a jewelers saw to do this––which is what patient and precise artisans would use––but I'm not patient. Or precise. I like power tools!
You'll note, in this photo, broken bits of cut-off disc strewn about my work bench. One of the drawbacks of being neither patient nor precise.
I hope you enjoy a pleasant Sunday. No fooling.
