Strelitzia Pierced Silver Earrings with Teak wood backing.

Last Saturday I continued my workshop adventures and did a Beginner’s workshop in Silver Sawing and Piercing with the amazing Novus Design Studio here in Johannesburg.
It was 5 hours long and we working with a Strelitzia design that we sawed out of a silver plate and eventually linked onto a Teak wood disk. There was much hand sawing, filing and polishing but the results were very satisfying and professional.
This technique of silver work is wonderful for intricate design and lettering, filigree motifs and cut out patterns.
