    Default second bracelet

    Here are some photos of my second silver bracelet. This was the ribbon I didn't cut very well as I gave myself such a huge fuzzy line to follow with the mirror finish. I will try the white paint trick tomorrow. The bending went much better this time thanks to the tips ya'll gave me.

    I like the design and execution. Next time draw it on with a pencil and cut it.

    Haraga,
    I'm afraid I'm not near good enough for that yet. I still do a lot of erasing when I draw what passes for a " design" for me. Those are supposed to be dogwood blossoms by the way. The bending went much better this time, thanks again.

    Nice design and cut well.You might try the white layout fluid the ngraver co. sells it allows you to erace a pencil mark fairly well or you can just smear a little more over it and redraw.

    Thanks very much for the kind words. I'm still probably the worst engraver on this forum, but you are right Andrew, I'm a lot better than I was, and thanks so much for your help.

    I didn't take a picture of it bent before I gave it to my sister, but I can get it back and take one. I've given away the two sterling bracelets I've done to friends and family, but now I've got about 10 requests. Problem is I don't feel like I'm good enough yet that I should charge anyone for engraving, I can see so much wrong with it. Maby while I'm still at this level just charge them for the silver?

    The answer to that question is simple is simple Todd................YES

    Charge for the silver and charge something for your time involved otherwise the expectation will always be free and your friends will keep you in a lifetimes worth of work

    Cheers
