I purchased this rotor from a watch supply house in Antwerp, spent a few hours engraving it, only to find that it doesn't fit the watch!
Moral of the story: see if part fits BEFORE engraving it.
Here's a sterling silver loupe I engraved in Munich last week. Stones set by Dyma Semenets of the Alexandre School in Belgium who was demonstrating with us at the GRS booth.
I did this a few weeks ago at the JCK Show in Las Vegas. Those of you who are enjoying Ron Smith's flare-cut scrolls might want to try your hand at that "luminesque" scrolls that I've done around the border. They are cut very much the same way. Sorry they're not clearer in the photo. This was a handheld shot with a point-and-shoot camera. / ~Sam
Abigail and I attended Rio Grande's Catalog In Motion Show in Tucson over the weekend and it was great. For one of my demonstrations I engraved this pendant. It's an inexpensive nickel silver pendant that GRS sells. After engraving I walked over to Neal Bell who was demonstrating gold plating and had him plate it.
I engraved half of the design and then transferred it to the other side. I wanted an angular space in the center for an initial. The size is 30mm or 1-1/8". She seems
Deeply cut in relief with beading tool background. The fleur de lys is sculpted. Flat 18ga sterling silver bent with the GRS bracelet bender.
