Dog pin

Today I attended a jewellery workshop at the Irish Design Shop. The two teachers Claire and Laura have a book that has lots of different outlines of things like animals, trees, leaves, cars and people. It comes with a cd so you can print out a particular image. They use these templates to give to people for their first project to get people used to piercing and also an introduction to soldering. I chose the dog above. I cut the shape with a piercing saw, filed and cleaned it, soldered a pin to the back then spray-painted it blue.
