Wednesday Welcome: Two Dog Days

Each week I'm using Etsy's Pounce feature in order to discover new items "from undiscovered shops waiting for their first sale" as the Etsy site states. This week's welcome is extended to Two Dog Days in Canada. The jewelry is made from metal clay which is pure silver particles mixed with a binder. Once dried it is fired in a kiln. This burns off the binder and leaves 99.9% pure silver. Next it is hand polished then oxidized and hand polished again. These whimsical pieces are created really show the artist's creativity!
