Pieces starts out as a sketch...
The sketch is then attached to a piece of sheet metal in the material of choice.
The pieces are freed from the sheet. I use a jewelers saw to carefully cut each piece out by hand.
Small holes are drilled to enable a saw blade to cut out the inside detail.
Once the pieces are cut out they are cleaned up with small files.
For these earrings a bezel was soldered onto the cut out pieces, the brass was patinated, and stones are set in the bezels.
