Blossom by syprina Blossom by syprina
My first serious piercing project. I've been averse to pursuing something so painstaking and unavoidably time consuming in my designs, but there was something I didn't know- piercing is obsessive fun! I'm hooked.

cut from 20g. sterling sheet. The cutout "scraps" are now in another necklace that I hope to post soon. It's about 2.5 in long and 1.5 in high if I remember correctly. Took about 2.5 hours to cut, add another hour at least in the original designing and finishing. That's a vintage crystal bead with aurora borealis finish at the bottom.

I've gotten quite a variety of comments as to what this design resembles- Ignoring the title, what are your thoughts?

Oh, and this is available for sale, just contact me here or at onyx.hardware@gmail.com.

Simply stunning! The intricate design reminds me of a water lily, and the silver hue is clean and elegant.  Absolutely fantastic!Heart

ooooh I like that one! You're the first to see that, although I did consider using the silver pieces from the negative spaces in a flame themed piece.

Nice piercing work!
I pierce for at least a few hours per day... at times much more, so I understand being obsessed with the technique. It's really fun once you start sweat soldering multiple pierced layers together to form a design with added intricacy & dimension.

Hmmmmm... now about your design.... it reminds me of a mask with horns... and the "mouth" reminds me of the mouth of the alien in the Predator movies. But the form of an exotic flower is much more obvious in my opinion. I really like your design:)

I think this design would also be great with a little hanging bezel set cabochon.... perhaps in a tear-drop shape?

My next project will probably include sweat soldering some of these pieces together. I meant to do that originally but I've been liking the pierced pieces I've done as is.

I'm getting much more creative impressions of this design on here- before DA I heard fox and butterfly- horns and fire are much more up my alley ;-)

Thanks for the feedback!

I like the simple elegance of the single layer pierced pieces as well. I think this Blossom design of yours is great as is:)
