Let me introduce the Gweilosticks!

It is for an exhibition about forks, where I wanted to represent where I am in my life at the moment. 
Walking through the buzzling streets of Sheung Wan to get lunch I thought about the chopsticks that of course is so characteristic to eating in Hong Kong and China but how hard it can be for a gweilo (means ghost person in Cantonese, ie me :) ) to grip those slippery dumplings. Instead of shoving the stick right through it which I end up doing once in a while (which I've learnt is not good table manners) I have put a little fork on it for easier grip. Combining Western with the Eastern eating habits.

How to make a bangle

This is one of the reasons why I love to work in metal. It is to try and form and create something out of a piece of thick strong metal by the use of the force of your arm. 
This is how I made a bangle for my Anatomy Collection.

I usually have an idea that I carry with me for a while. But it always feels better to sketch it out on paper.  
After you measured and cut off how much wire you need you have to anneal the silver to make it softer and workable.

 After that you can bend it around so that the ends meet. 

It takes a couple of rounds of annealing before it gets somewhat round. 

When the ends meet and to make them fit perfectly flat against each other you pierce through the opening. 

 After that you can solder the joints together

And then hammer it into the correct shape on the mandrel 

When it is perfectly round it is time to start filing off all the marks left from forming and soldering. 

 And after a lot of filing and a lot of polishing it is done!
