Chained

Posted in: Metalwork | 1

I made a sterling silver chain bracelet recently. It has a pair of heavy charms and is set with a sweet cabachon amethyst (February birthstone). When I finished the rough polishing and then the final rouge polishing I saw a pink and black racoon’s face peering at me from the bathroom mirror. Me? Polishing metal is greasy work but the resulting shine is so pretty.

Hand forged chains are so simple and so strong, a world away from their machine made counterparts.
