Commissioned Coronet Baron Wulfgar Silfrahárr

May 2020

Band is hand-hammered nickel-silver with brass pattern wire embellishments. The Stag is etched copper, and enameled. The jewels are imitation amber.

I tried experimenting with a few new techniques where after I hammered and polished the band, I plated with copper, and then polished again.  It provides a very subtle color variation in the hammer strikes and accentuates the mixed metal color palette of the piece.  The stag centerpiece was also a bit if experimentation where I etched the copper in acid, and then carbonized the enamel in the etch-lines to provide a contrast.  Needs a little refining to improve, but overall, it worked.
