Results of the silversmithing workshop #2

Yesterday, I shared with you the first lesson of Brian Clarke's silversmithing workshop - sinking. Today, I will show the the second exercise:

Brian shows me how to make the crimps

Brian demonstrates raising on a oval stake with a nylon mallet

Ben and I give it a try...

This is what it looks like after a few courses of raising...not very pretty...

...but this is what it looks like when it is finished! Lovely!

Tomorrow I will show you the final projects---Ben made a goblet and I made a flower bud vase.
