The Sakura Knucklebuster

Last weekend I had a ball in a silver and acrylic workshop run by Dan Cox at BIA.

When you do a workshop like this, you really appreciate the time that goes into handcrafting jewellery.  I spent two days cutting, filing, filing and more filing, sanding, rivetting, polishing and cleaning, all just on the single piece.  It's certainly a statement piece and one that no-one will want to mess with me while I'm wearing it.


I have to say though, that I found the process really addictive and can't wait to book into another class.


I loved the work completed by the other students in the class.  You can see picture of their rings here.
