I was at the club and Eleanor and Ellie were doing it and showing Diane. I just asked if I could watch and learn. I was then handed the gold by Eleanor and some fine silver by Diane and was told to have at it! I ended up making a pair of earrings which I then added a LOS patina to.
Friday night I put the flat cuff in my pitch bowl so I could chase the texture which I am calling 1,000 eyelashes. Each little curve is a hammer strike! I heated and pickled the flat cuff 6 times and had a nice white layer of fine silver. I then applied the gold and the LOS to get a nice gray/blue patina. After I was all done polishing the inside I bent and formed the cuff.
Here is the cuff after the patina and after forming, on my wrist. I burnished a bit too much on that square but i can live with it cause this cuff is MINE!
