    I hate waste and I hate spending money I don't have to so this gets a massive thumbs up from me. A number of my tools are either built up from bits I had lying about, or they're items I've picked up...

    Lovely work on those rings.

    My own most recent close call jewellery wise was a pair of engraved aluminium bracelets that had to be done for last Christmas. No great stress in the end but that's...

    No worries, will get a pic of them later. Be warned though, they're not pretty. Mostly made from salvaged bits and bobs from around my workshop.

    Return Of The Wanderer...

    Back for one of my far too infrequent visits to this forum and to jewellery making in general. Having a look around and it seems the standard on here is as stellar as ever. Afraid my only offering of...

    The blacking is fairly robust yeah. Am still looking at ways to refine it further, possibly gently warming the piece to replicate the engine heat the paint is designed for. This might put a final...

    Not sure if it's cleverness or just a cussed refusal to give in but either way, I'll gladly take any compliments that are offered! :D

    Well I can assure you I'm on your side on this one Dennis. I'm all for keeping things simple and using what's to hand wherever possible. The Autosol's on the bench anyway, at least in part because we...

    Many thanks for the compliments. That's a very interesting point you make about the metal used Dennis. I generally use aluminium for the rather prosaic reason that I simply have a lot of it about as...

    Lovely piece of work. I really must try doing something like this. I'm a panel beater by trade so a bit of decorative metal bashing would be a natural progression!

    3D printing is just becoming ever more interesting, in any number of applications. That said, I think I'll leave it to you for this type of job. I have enough engineering type stuff going on with...

    Cracking bit of work there Beadjoux. Hadn't really been aware of foldforming until my eye lighted on this. Think I'll be, quite literally, having a bash at it at some stage now though.
