I tend to avoid sawing silver as I continually break blades. I will merrily sit at my desk soldering, hammering and filing but when that saw comes off the wall, bleep-bleepity-bleeps are sure to follow.
Well today I have had a jolly old time with my saw and not one blade has snapped. Hopefully this is a turning point and some wonderful saw cut pendants and earrings are soon to come. Today my successful sawing has resulted in two pairs of arrow head studs. One pair is an order and the other pair is for my beautiful 13 year old daughter (modelling her pair below).
... and I have used the off-cuts to make four little triangle studs (yes, the daughter gets a pair of these too!)
