I am working on a new brooch and trying something new at the same time. I am not sure if it will work. I am obsessed with facets/polygon count/reduction of surface. It is starting to become a problem. I thought instead of laser etching this pattern on to the enamel I would make them with flexible points on the back. Here are some tests where I am fusing the copper tubes to the back of the piece with the enamel. Eventually these tubes will accept braided wire so each facet will move individually. This is a solder-less connection. I am not sure how strong it will be but so far it seems to be holding up just fine. Each part is about 1/2" on it's longest side.
