Balanese Filagree

Apr 16th, 2008No Comments

Although time consuming, it is easy…another example of balanese filagree as inspired by Donna Kato.  On a circle cut out, I started making coils with an extruder and cutting little bits and rolling them for the balls then slowly the design emerged.  I believe I used some liquid clay to adhear the elements, and probably baked this 3 times before it was finished.   It is about 2 inches wide, and the pin back is embedded into clay and baked on the back.
