Better Late Than Never
Here are some pieces I made back in college (the first time) that I never got around to photographing. They're made with champleve enamel, textured copper and steel wire. The floating effect is done by attaching the pieces using wire rivets with tubing spacers. I made each of these in about a day in the studio so they're pretty spontaneous pieces. Steel wire is great for assembling designs quickly, because you can spot-solder it with silver solder. You can keep adding pieces without having to worry about the solder on your previous joints melting. It works really well for building up three dimensional structures.
