    Default FEGA 2008 engraving demonstration

    Here's the stainless steel bracelet I engraved at FEGA. It's made of 410 stainless and was engraved with a Gravermach with Airtact. The photo was shot at the show. / ~Sam

    Sam.........Stunning work and the design layout is fabulous.
    I love the balance and symmetry. Also it demonstrates that a good photograph makes your fantastic work become totally awesome in so many aspects.

    (Stainless sure cuts differently, doesn't it?)

    Thanks for sharing!

    Excellent!!

    Did you inlay before or after bending? Fun, eh??

    Default Stainless

    How thick was the stainless bracelet? How was that bracelet bent? and was it engraved before bending?

    It was inlaid before bending, and care was taken to minimize the bend in the area under the inlay.
    Here's a shot before bending with the bracelet mounted in Thermo-Loc. It was bent with the GRS bracelet former at the show.

    Default Bracelet

    Sam, Eric showed me the bracelet you engraved at the FEGA show. I was wondering was it Abigail's
    birthday present? Just curious. It would certainly look lovely on her wrist.:D

    Gee Sam I see potential in your work

    Seriously really nice. Your fine line shading is unsurpassed.
    You probably have to be very careful bending around the inlay.

    Default thickness

    I was just curious how thick the 410 stainless was that the GRS bracelet former was able to bend. That's pretty impressive.
