Now Playing: when you don't find what you want
Topic: Some Backlog
Several years ago I took a jewelery and metalsmithing class - several times. One of the techniques we had to work on was called metal piercing. Essentially, this is sawing shapes out of sheet metal.
I chose to make some brass stencils of shapes and/or sizes that I could not find elsewhere. These two leaf stencils are about the size of a penny. The Japanese character for happiness is avout 2 inches tall.
I've not done any more stencil cutting since leaving the class but I now have the skills and the tools to do so if I wish.
