Coffee Cup Necklace

I had a little scrap of sterling silver left over from another project and a little bit of extra time in the workshop, so I whipped up this baby.

After heating up and rolling out the silver, a little like pastry, to make the piece a bit bigger to fit the design. Cut it out with my jewellers saw. Drilled a hole for the handle to cup out the middle piece. Soldered on a bracket on the back to thread through the chain. Bit of sanding and tidying up the edges. Da dah!

The coffee cup is also going to be used on the medal, once I figure out the best way to make the ribbon detachable.
