Using handmade dies to make jewelry
Some of my work is made from dies that I cut. This allows me to get a 3-D form that's lightweight. Here are some dies I've cut, along with copper samples.

Made in silver.
Here is a pendant made from a handmade die. It is the amphora shape in the top photo, middle die.
Split matrix die
Even a simple shape can produce a variety of results.
