Learning how to Saw Sterling Silver Sheet Metal

I recently purchased a jewelry saw, thinking I would try a new technique. I have to admit I was a little bit intimidated. Yes, I broke blades 🙂 but I learned that the saw needs to be lubricated at ALL times! keep it straight and you’ll be fine. Oh did I mention Practice? Practice? Practice? I bought two huge sheets of copper, I couldn’t bear the thought of wasting sterling silver, especially with the price skyrocketing these days. But I did get enough guts to make a naughty cat charm. I turned it into a pendant necklace!

  1. I just got a jewelry saw for christmas! Haven’t tried it out yet, as I’m not sure how to begin. It’s intimidating, trying a totally new technique! Love the cat charm though, and it’s comforting to see that another beginner was able to create something lovely like that after just a little practice. 🙂
