I wanted to have a special piece of jewellery as a gift for my wife. After a bit of research I decided to do it on my own. Still having a bunch of tools from a former project it only needed a bit of material. A plate of 925 silver to be precise.
I created a template from an origami bird. Printed it out and glued it onto the silver sheet with simple paper glue.
Next was to transform 2D to 3D by bending the piece along the edges. I made this on a small anvil using a rounded hammer. One needs to be a bit careful not to hammer deeper markings into the material.
I used a micro drill together with matte polishing tip to give the surface a nice finish.
