I had lots of fun with the rubber cuffs, and making jewelry with fine metals is almost as fun!
I can't find the pendant that I made the first night (it's unfinished -- I put it in a special safe place -- you know, those places that you stumble upon months later?)
This is the ring that I made during week 2. It fits me perfectly -- however, Lauren loves it too -- so it *might* go to her.
I learned how to measure a strip of metal so the ring will fit you perfectly. After I cut a strip of silver, I sent it through a rolling mill with a skeleton leaf, then re-cut the metal to size, annealed it, formed it into a near circle, then soldered it, then formed it and antiqued it and polished it. I can do this!
Next up is lost wax carving and casting. WooHoo!
