Ned's Head




For as long as I can remember, I have wanted to create something about Ned Kelly. Our famous, rugged bushranger from the early 1800's. So a couple of weeks ago I thought, I wonder if I could do it with metal, so I started to bang, pull, twist and play with some copper sheet metal. Then Ned's head appeared, and the rest just fell into place with making a rather crude hammered steel jump ring chain. In Ned's head is 3 photos of him through different stages of his life which you can view by looking through his slit in his helmet.
Above his helmet is a vintage police buckle that Jen (see she is to blame for all this jewellery making) LOL and hanging from the buckle is an etched brass bullet, representing the many bullets that were fired upon Ned in his famous gun fight at Glenrowen.
Love Sarah
