|©2015 Barry Smith - Detail of metal disks|
When I'm making pieces I'm always conscious that I'm making pieces for a mother and two adult daughters - so I try to make three of most items where the metal permits. It has rained all weekend so I was only able to do the cutting band forming of the pieces - I will need a fine day to do the grinding and polishing. So all the pieces I worked on are in the rough.
I formed a few cuff bracelets.
