Easter Necklace



For those of us who have, or have used, one of Sherri’s E3 Electroform machines, nothing is safe from the question, “Could I plate this in copper?” We eye commonly plated natural things like leaves and sticks, but nothing escapes the imagination. I have a pink Barbie shoe on my desk that is destined to become a copper charm, and I once briefly considered the ladybug I found on my sweater.

Proof of the quirky things that can become jewelry is this cheap plastic rabbit trinket that Sherri turned into an elegant copper pendant for Easter. She added a wire loop before processing so it could be made into a necklace. If you would like to learn more about the E3 Electroform, check here.
