    Default I finally bended my second Ti bracelet [photo]

    I have already showed this when it was flat, but as it is that wide it was quite hard to make a good photo.
    Now that it is bended, it really has come to live even on a photo and shows the coloured background better.

    Arnaud, you made that flat piece of titanum come alive. It looks great!

    This turned out beautiful. Why do you always have a dancing chicken?

    Thanks Horse, Evgeni, Ed, mrthe, Carol and Frank.

    Thing is that I started this design over 6 months ago and the same for the main cuts. Then I left it aside because too much time consuming and the fact that my skills on both design and cutting progressed. But like I always tell my students, always finish what you started the best you can. That way you learn the most.
    So I had to finish this one, it is not ordered, just to have a recent work that represents my actual skills on engraving and design.

    Frank, the dancing chicken refers to my friend Chris DeCamillis, sometimes I own him a chicken, sometimes he own me one. Just a never ending joke.

    Arnaud,

    This is a very handsome result, and the coloured background really makes it 'pop'. You have earned your right to feel good about this, and I think many of us appreciate the public way you have interacted in refining your designs.

    Remind me, you have talked about sand blasting, are you doing background relief by masking and sand blasting? If so, I would like to know more of your technique? Thank you!

    Rod
