I'm not sure if copper and brass count as Fine Metals but it was our first fine metal project on my Contemporary Crafts degree. These are my first attempts at working with copper and brass and making use of a jeweller's saw. I had to leave my course after a month due to a family bereavement but I'm restarting my course in September all being well.
My first jeweller's saw improvised "doodles"
My first project
and the panels I made.
It ended up being a bit rushed and I super glued the 3 pieces together in the end which was a big no no but I still passed the unit as I incorporated quite a few techniques into it. Rushing meant I didn't get to polish it either so it is fairly scuffed. I did enjoy it though! I think I enjoy working with metal as much as I like to paint or draw. I didn't measure anything as I like to try and do as much by eye as I can but I think this project taught me that it's probably not a very good idea with metalwork.
