valentine's day rose

my friend brandon is a blacksmith. he sometimes makes steel roses. for his girlfriend, for valentine's day, he wanted to make a sterling silver rose. i told him to come over today and i'd help him out. it turned out to be a much bigger project than either of us anticipated.


however, after about 6 hours, here is the finished project.

it was almost dark by the time we were done,
so i couldn't get very great photos, but it was badass!

solid silver. heavy. gorgeous.
