I love them all, but "we're all mad here" is my favorite!

Great job!

hi!
I'm always curious when I see your posts - do you had cut these or are they laser cut?
great designs!

ice nice NICE...I recognize the fonts...do you use a digital cutter? Would you share what size/weight steel you use. These are delightful!

Thank you so much for your kind messages! I hope everyone had a great weekend! Smiley

I am unable to pierce thicker gauge steel with my blades made for softer metals (like sterling or copper), so these are machine pierced and then the details are filed. Smiley Depending on the design I will work with anything from 14 gauge to 26 gauge to make sure I have the right weight and strength for the piece. I cut the main silhouette using a laser my uncle has for his business; they have a laser cutter for ductwork. This machine will cut brass, mild steel, stainless steel, and lots of other metals, woods, and plastics. Originally he had a plasma machine I used which is excellent for large pieces like wall art, but on small jewelry it causes a lot of burring and it's difficult to clean and finish.

I then use my jeweler's files for these and they work very well with cleaning interior cuts and rounding edges. I also have a set of carbon steel files which are excellent to use to enlarge holes and rework finer details as both plasma and laser cutters leave a lot of excess on the steel that must be removed, as well as marks from heat. I always use a hand brushed finish even though the steel sheeting I use is brushed beforehand.  Smiley
