Joy! I got a new hammer in the mail. This is a nifty hammer- it's designed by the guy who did my beloved miniature stakes- and I am looking forward to using it. As an extra plus: these hammers are sent all polished and ready for use (as are the stakes), so there's not a lot of polishing time one has to do before playing with one's new toys.

I ordered some powdered solder about 10 days ago (I ordered eutectic in powdered and paste forms, and hard in powder), but have not yet received it. I am starting to grow a mite concerned.

I don't think I mentioned this previously- although I could be forgetful- but I have posted pictures and info about a number of individually handmade scent lockets on my website. The page with links to all of them is here: http://www.afmetalsmith.com/contents/details/scentlockets.html , and all are for sale.

And on an irrelevant note: I've added some new products to my Cafe Press store- pretty much just more options for my Celtic Heart design. If you're interested, look here: http://www.cafepress.com/electriccelt/352871

I clicked on your profile via metalsmithing and I poked around a bit. I found your mobius strip ring and it made me smile. I made a mobius strip bracelet out of damascus steel.

Oh- that's gorgeous! Damascus is so cool. If my husband ever gets a decent space to set up a forge, I'd love to work with some Damascus- maybe even try making a piece...

Ah, 90% of the fun was using a power hammer! That thing is completely badass.

Yeah- I don't think I'm up for much Damascus making without some power assistance! And we just canNOT have a power hammer here in suburbia.

I got to use a HUGE power hammer at a course in powder Damascus I took one year down at Touchstone. It was awe-inspiring!
