Busy hands getting the hang of saw-piercing.
Debbie had never used a jewellery saw before today!
This was Debbbie's first sawing effort - cut from a copper penny - and she didn't even break a blade!
The heart takes shape.
This a spoon that we made into a pendant - there was sawing,filing,stamping,eyelet setting and wire wrapping involved - oh and adding patination!
Debbie also had a go at sawing material other than metal - the black butterfly is a vinyl record. She had just enough time to have a bit of a play with the doming block!
All in all Debbie was as proud as punch of her acheivements and I feel I have empowered another artisan to get out there and CREATE so I am very satisfied with that feeling! We handcrafters will take over the world one day! (insert evil laugh here!)
