  1. Ok, so perhaps this isn't as sharp as people here are used to, but I'll give it a shot anyway.. I've recently (this week actually) decided to start a little side-hustle in connection with my knife-making - seeing as I need to practice my engraving skills, and would like to get paid doing so. So I've decided to dedicate 1 week a month to making one piece of jewelry, while utilizing the remaining 3 weeks for my knife project. So - I present to you all the first week's result - the "Compass": Stats: Width: 29,2 mm Length: 63,7 mm Thickness: 4,8 mm Vekt: 27 gram It ended up a bit thicker than I had initially wanted, but... I'll make the next one around 3 - 3,5mm thick I think. The piece is made out of a forged piece of railroad steel, engraved in a deep relief with some ornamentation many might be familiar with.. In the middle of the ornamentation I put a 2mm blue sapphire. I also put in some 24kt gold in the corners, and engraved the traditional wheat-pattern sprouting out from the top and bottom of the piece. The bail is made from a piece of 925 Sterling Silver. The bevels around the edges are mirror polished. Total work time: 24 hours from first hit with the hammer, to the last polishing touch... Tomorrow I'm putting this up for sale at the equivalent of 615 USD here in Norway. I have to say, I haven't felt this nervous in quite some time. Fingers crossed! Enjoy what is left of the weekend folks, tomorrow it's back to work!
  2. I don't know how interesting this is, but.. been working on a birthday present for the lady of the house this weekend.. I used a piece of 15n20 nickel steel and engraved a simple design in relief, with 24k gold inlay in the heart as well as four 0,03ct white diamonds around. Currently I'm working on the bail, which will be in 925 sterling silver. cut shape, drilled holes and bent it this morning before work. I have a silver chain left-over from the work I did last year, so I will use that for the necklace. 14 hours into it at this point. Have a nice week everyone!
