Learn to take metal, this time copper, texture the surface with heat and

design.  A simple beginner project to cut your initial out of the piece with

a jeweler’s saw.  My J not a plain J, a big  J with curves and a slant to the side.

The edge most be filed and made smooth.  My mind is in trance from this

method.   I keep filing until I almost cut myself.  What a surprise to create

a weapon instead of jewelry.  I ask the teacher, “What came first, jewelry

or the sword?”
