  1. @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.
  2. A diamond for the girlfriends engagement ring 😫
  3. 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...
  4. Today I made.....

    tried that once.. set the fire alarm off in the workshop and had to cancel the fire brigade 😳🙃
  5. Today I made.....

    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.

    Thanks for that, congrats on an amazing trade.

    A bit curious as to what you thought of the news regarding $KMD @mr-dead?
  8. Today I made.....

    Some of my "Proper" work
  9. Today I made.....

    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.
  10. wanted Platinum I would like some Platinum Please

    @Mkidstacker Hand poured platinum?😂
  11. @BackyardBullion Apologies, it appears I skipped half of the thread 😂
  12. 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.
  13. Today I made.....

    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.
  14. Today I made.....

    currently having one of those moments wondering how the hell this is going to work 🤔
  15. 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?
  16. Today I made.....

    I'll welcome any ideas for a handle?
  17. 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
  18. What Watches do you own!!!

    @mr-dead that is truly a masterpiece!
  19. Hot weather

    Fill a Tupperware container with water and freeze it, leave it to defrost in front of a fan, hey presto air conditioning!
  20. What Watches do you own!!!

    @Trumar I need to do some work to the wire lugs and the dial redoing but it will look brilliant when it's finished.
  21. What Watches do you own!!!

    my watch maker offered me an absolute steal on this 1930s Silver omega trench watch, most likely an officer's. Couple of hairline cracks on the dial but I shall be getting it repair by a guy over in the states.
  22. JSP Gold Testing Acid

    I use acid testing for un-hallmarked jewellery all the time, cooksongold or other jewellery supplies have acid testing kits that would be more than suitable. I use a small abrasive "Buff Stick" which takes the plating layer off. one thing I would say is to wash the acid off with soda to neutralise before washing with water, acid remnants can leave nasty burns.
