Petit Four Pendants

I've been having a play with Petit Four tins in the studio after I picked up three dozen at a car boot sale recently. I love their shape and thought they would be good for some simple metal pendants. I started off bending some in various ways using my trusty vice. This is a pendant made from two of them plus a copper sheet bead and copper wire:


I then settled down to getting some aggression out by beating the living daylights out of some of them! I attached them to a choker wire, no other additions:


More exploration is in the pipeline!
