How I Like to Play With Texture

I just recently started working with texture, as I just started doing metal work. This means sawing, cutting and stamping metal jewelry.

Here's some examples of pieces where I did different textures

This piece was severely punished with different hammers, to give it a rough used metal look. I wanted it to look like a piece of old metal scram.

In these moons I used a star metal stamp to create the texture. From afar it just looks like normal ballpen hammer marks, but when you get close you see all the small stars.

In this piece I used a ballpen hammer and metal stamps. The stamps was used to create a border line around my letters.

Here's a great example of how different the same style of bracelet can be with and without texture added to the metal. On the first picture the links have been hammered, with a texture hammer. Second photo I left the links smooth.

Texture is fun to work with, and I've just started playing with all of the possibilities.

This article was part of the SATEAM blog carnival. We are given a certain topic, and we all write a blog post on the subject. This months was “How does texture play into your work?”

  1. I love your heart - its wonderful and also the comparison between the two bracelets!

  2. Camilla your work is the image of texture. I particularly like how you have hammered the stars with multiple layers of stampings. It makes them look so old!

  3. I love how you are using many different textures in one piece. They look great!

  4. Camilla- add me to the growing list of people who LOVE how you've layered texture. Very well done.

  5. I love your moons, very nice texture.

  6. Beautiful pieces, Camilla! The textures add such depth - love them!
