This week our challenge was to build something combining 2 different materials. So I chose to use walnut wood and brass metal and create a neckless.
I found some walnut scraps that fitted my needs and went to Metaliferous store to buy some golden pieces of brass metal.
These are the materials I got:
So I started sanding the wood until it got it to the shapes that I really wanted:
I also cut a metal piece that already had a hole drilled on:
When I cut the metal there was a pointy piece at the bottom, so I polished it.
Then, once I had all my pieces, I drilled holes into the wood to pass the chain. I have used the drill press to make these holes and while doing that I have put 2 scrap woods together with my piece so that it would not be damaged:
But the first attempt I made the holes too small and the chain did not pass:
So I drilled bigger holes on top of these and when I did that one of my pieces cracked a little bit. I think it was because it was so thin and delicate.
But in the end it worked out fine and this is the final result:
