Did you make that yourself? Looks interesting. Will it actually be functional once complete?

Sterling silver will not be a metal for use, but as a conversation piece, NICE.
BTW, sterling is pretty soft.

Hi bobasaurus, Thanks. yes I built this and others. See my earlier string “Miniature Scraper Plane – build process” where I’ve detailed how the build progressed.

Thanks Bill. Yes, it’s more of a conversation piece. I think of my line as “Pocket Jewelry” for the well dressed crafter, but I do use em in my other hobbies building model airplanes and miniature stuff. And sometimes it’s just fine jewelry. Ralph

Fantastic work.
As a jeweler designer/caster I can really appreciate the workmanship in those pieces.
