Nope, you gotta wait and see. This also doesn't happen for everyone, and not always with the same metals. It depends on your own personal chemistry.

Couple things I've made over the past couple days! Video game themed, of course.

Health meter bracelet, out of copper and sterling silver.



And this; a small (4cm long) butterfly knife pendant commissioned to be game-accurate to the one used by the Spy in TF2. Looks the same from both sides. Alas, no moving parts.

looks like it's been 'dipped' in melted solder. Definatley not wire wrapped.

You could also just buy a little jar of silver dip.

If you're thinking of the colourful, clean-edged designs that have been popping up everywhere lately you may want to consider paying a visit to Ponoko.com, a laser cutting business specializing in plastics, among other things. Cutting acrylic by hand isn't really a beginner's game and laser cutting has the advantage of not requiring all the sanding and polishing that using a saw will. (If you want a nice finish and smooth edges, anyway) If you do it through a service like Ponoko you also won't need to buy tools.

If you're going to try it by hand I suggest giving spiral blades a try. They leave a wider kerf and a more ragged edge but they have the advatage of not freezing up like a regular blade will. Also, practice.
