Well… It’s almost done.
Hiccups I’ve had so far include:
– burning through one of my felt pieces when soldering a jump ring around it
– realizing I left my completed jump ring chain sitting in the acid stuff at studio
– brass does not heat patina in my oven
Other than that it’s been peachy.
Wow, after getting the materials, Ponoko really does move fast. Sweet!
To maximize my test-run ability, I’ll be able to get double the pieces I’ll need from Ponoko, plus a little something extra for non-school stuff. Unless filling the whole template is crazy expensive- but I’m hoping buying this size template will allow me to not waste too much.
My materials will be copper, bordeaux felt, and brass attachments.
