    Today I made.....

    After the popularity of the "Today I bought.." and "Today I received" Threads I thought perhaps people could upload pictures of things they have made/poured/cast. I thought I'd kick it off with this 9ct Gold bangle I made today...

    It's been a bit of a long ongoing project around work commitments but I recently finished my girlfriends engagement ring.

    That is seriously impressive, make the odd kilo bar into a doorstop🤣

    This MUST be a scam right?

    To be fair you could hypothetically put a real sovereign in a box of junk and you'd still probably get more than the value of the sovereign, people will buy anything and if it looks too good to be true it usually is!

    Wearable silver bullion!?

    @BackyardBullion looks great but feel you would need a heavier chain, the pendant would cause an awful lot of wear to the chain

    Wearable silver bullion!?

    @BackyardBullion the technical term would be called a bail or jump ring

    Another work in progress, lost wax models from a silver model cast into 9ct gold, bit of cleaning up and polishing to do.
  11. @HyHy Fortunately no sovereigns will be harmed in the process of making this, she's a white gold fan unfortunately! But yes it shall be made by me.
  12. A diamond for the girlfriends engagement ring 😫

    Just thought i would share one of the major commisions I've had at work, a complete sterling silver book, for a 50th wedding anniversary. The construction method was a brainstorm and a half. The outter pages have been gilded. Some information i have covered for confidentially reasons as well. Quite pleased with how it finished up.

    Hey @Trumar Not finished yet, quite busy with real work at the moment and this is just a little side project. Will definitely upload a picture or two when i get round to finishing.
  19. @BackyardBullion Apologies, it appears I skipped half of the thread 😂
  20. If I'm honest having used BAO for many years I can't speak for Edinburgh, I've never had a bar or a piece of jewellery drilled into before, I have had a couple of knocks and bumps but I've found it's better to send the work in a semi finished state and finish polishing once it's back. If you're getting really concerned that have a look at the laser engraving hallmark, @SilverStan has it on a couple of his. Personally I'd be putting in a complaint and making them aware that you're not happy, Alternatively you could look at registering with another Assay office.

    Just a small update on the silver letter opener, went with a twist handle for a nice contrast. Thinking of putting a nice coin on the end of the twist.

    currently having one of those moments wondering how the hell this is going to work 🤔

    Today I made.....

    @Silverhunter it's going to be smoothed over and polished, not sure at that stage yet. What do you mean by the groove?

    I'll welcome any ideas for a handle?

    Today I made.....

    Found some time to work on something I've wanted to make for a while, a rather heavyweight 999 silver letter opener, very much a work in progress and some brainstorming needed for the handle. I've attached a video for anyone wanting to have a closer look. 20170711_161208.mp4
