Finally got a good picture of this thing. This was what I made for the Thematic Bracelet assignment from MassART's jewelry program.
Based off the pattern from this video: www.youtube.com/watch?v=iVM-dC… Except instead of aviation shears and a ball-peen, I used a jewelers saw and other small metalworking techniques.
Made out of a sheet of Nu-Gold (Brass alloy) and Bronze (90% Cu, 10% Sn) and a piece of Sterling Silver sweat soldiered on to the knuckle plate. The stone is a chunk of Pietersite that I cut up and shaped into a cab. I am amazed that I didn't melt the fine silver bezel wire.
The rivets were copper pre-fabs with one side already set, and the washers were Brass. I ordered them from an AMAZING website that has EVERYTHING: www.mcmaster.com/
