Crap - to - Calliope

...or making lemonade out of a lemon.

 It' pretty doggone adorable, IMHO.  I meant to take a picture with a quarter to give an idea of the scale.  The body of the wagon is about as tall as a quarter.

Copper, brass, sterling silver, brooch,  2 1/2" x 1 3/8"  x 1/4"

Man, that cleaned up nice!

Greg Ashby said...

That is intricate work. It would drive me crazy to do stuff that small and intricate. (Not to mention stubby fingers and fall asleep a lot)
NICE, cool :)

I am amazed myself at how much I am enjoying this "tedious" stuff.

Laura G said...

It is very charming and a beautiful finished quality, Bobi. How very adorable.

Bobi, well done! You have way more patience than I do. This little detailed stuff is hard for me to do. Beautiful work. Are you soldering the pin onto the back?

Terrie said...

Very cool. It has a nice vintage vibe to it and the detail is extraordinary. So pretty.

Wendy, yes, I soldered a pin on the back. It also opens, the whole front pulls out. I made a kind of spring tension to hold it in place but haven;t gotten the "spring" back into it properly after soldering annealed it.
Terrie, yeah, it's kind of 'steam punk meets Cinderella." :)
