So yesterday, when I didn’t like my practice bracelet and I said I thought it was funny that the photographs in craft books always hide wonky design? I lied. I didn’t think it was funny. I was annoyed. Pissed, maybe, because it happens all the time. And I’m especially mad because I don’t know–yet–how to make it better. Like I could do oval links, but I don’t have a mandrel for that. So later, last night, I took out my frustration on some sheet metal and had a fantastic time.
The sheet metal I have is only 28 gauge, easy cutting. The stuff from class was heavier, and I did whang the crap out of it with an embossing hammer. It’s good to know I can saw better than I did that day!
