I have been practicing cutting out shapes with my jeweler's saw. I am still just starting to get the hang of it. My cutting is still a bit rough but, I got the shape cut out and it's not too bad. I plan on doing a bit more practicing and then creating some etched copper shapes and cutting out to use in my jewelry designs.
I really appreciate all of the tips and comments of encouragement from everyone. It really has been great to have that extra bit of motivation to keep me going. I almost gave up today when I couldn't find my stash of blades any where. i had put them in a "safe place" so that they wouldn't get stepped on, broken, or thrown away. I need to find a better, permanent container for them. Right now they are in plastic baggies and those plastic straws that honey comes in.
Does anyone have any good suggestions for storing jeweler's saw blades? Where/how do you store yours to keep them from breaking and getting lost?
As a beginner I am still welcoming any hints, tips, or encouraging comments that might make my learning curve with the saw a little smoother.
I'm looking forward to hearing from you! Thanks peeps!
