About Shalini Austin

I am a self taught metalsmith and I make Copper Things. It started as a hobby in 2008, making wire jewellery. As I progressed on my creative journey I learnt to appreciate sheet metal, especially copper. So it is only natural that my work is now taking a new path in coppersmithing. In recent years I have been working mainly with sheet copper, crafting a decorative and functional range of copper jewellery, home-ware and sculptures.  I love working with sheet metal and creating interesting 3D forms and shapes, often using nothing more than a simple hammer to create textures. Recently I have also started enamelling, which has proven very popular with jewellery customers

Textured Copper Flower Pendant 04 | Antique Finish

Gorgeous Copper Flower Pendant 04 with lovely textures.

I used a piercing saw to cut out the flower shape from copper sheet and used hammers, stamps and some daps to give it texture and form.

The pendant has been given an antique patina finish giving it a classic timeless look.

I made these copper flowers from copper salvaged from an old copper tank. The metal was not smooth to start with and the hammer marks gave it even more interesting texture. The antique finish makes these textures stand out even more, which I think is the most interesting part of the piece.
