So what have I been doing in Silversmithing class recently?

Here’s what I’ve been doing for the past few weeks.


A Birthday Present for my best friend G. The larger of the two circles is about 2cm. I punched some little circles and then had at it with the little planishing hammer. I’m really pleased with how it turned out.


My Top Sekrit project for the last few weeks. This is the test piece (so it’s the one the Baby Formerly Known as Cheddar will end up with). It came out a lot better then I imagined it would. Need to practice my Hammering more and come up with some way of keeping the stamps lined up.

It’s fully adjustable to and extends out to just below 17cm. It’s still way to big for ex-Cheddar though but she’ll grow into it eventually.

I’m going to have a go at making one for me. (It’ll need to be slightly bigger to fit me though.)


From the side so you can see the little fiddly guide hoops I made from scratch from wire.


The last piece I did last year before having ex-Cheddar. The stone is a piece of scrap glass I fused into the kiln into a little hemisphere. Again planished and hand drilled at the top.

I love planishing so much, it hides a multitude of sins.
