Today's job

Just before Christmas I had a handful of my birch twigs cast in silver, as I sold quite a few of the pieces with twigs in, in the run up to Christmas. I then ran out of time to make them into necklaces and bangles, and have just got round to doing a few. These need a final go on the bangle mandrel to make sure they are round, and then they need a polish. I tumble polish these as it also 'work hardens' the silver and makes them a little stronger and more able to resist getting dented. These are so delicate and I still love them, even though I originally made them a year ago.
