  • Thanks my friend…. yes, he was enjoying his ‘task’…and the attention.

    Great work and great demonstration too! I made only a bracelet for my husband with this technique and my hand were very sore at the end, and I was using sterling silver rings, not steel!! One needs very strong hands to produce that kind of garment! :-)

  • Wow!! can’t imagine working with this stuff then…. it did seem pretty heavy duty! Hope your husband appreciated your efforts…I’m sure he did! :) thanks Jo!
