      WELCOME NEW UJ MEMBERS   06/25/2017

      It seems the word is out and UJ is enjoying a steady stream of newly Registered Members. Welcome to all of you, and we are all looking forward to your positive participation. I strongly suggest you review the Board Guidelines that have been in place since 2002. The most significant thing being that UJ is a NO POLITICS BOARD. LInk:  UJ BOARD GUIDELINES   Also UJ stays afloat mainly through Member Donations. Once a Donation is made you are placed in the Contributing Member Group with extra Priviliges. I am getting very few new Donations so hopefully this will spur that on a bit. Link:  New Members/Donations/Priviliges

It all begins as a flat piece of material (nickel silver). First I layout the ellipse then transfer the subject (dog, bird etc) to the metal and begin cutting. After I complete the engraving I hand saw out the outline and then file it smooth. Next comes the initial polishing. After that I bend it to shape and last a final polishing. All in all, depending upon how much detail, background removal and scroll work it comes out to somewhere between 10 to 15 hours.

 

Here's a photo of what it looks like before being cut to shape. You can see the picture it evolves from in the background.
