Well the box is finally finished, all that remained to do was filing all the surfaces to remove fire stain (copper that moves to the surface of the silver during heating, Sterling silver is 925 parts silver, 75 part copper) and sanding with fine grades of wet and dry paper. I di not use a polishing wheel as this would have rounded off the edge causing the loss of the nice sharp look.
I would recommend the course to anyone, our tutor Linda Robertson was fantastic, really patient and as you can see from her website really talented. Central St Martins is also an amazing place to do the course, the facilities are absolutely first rate. It also helped to be in such a great class everyone was so friendly and we all helped each other out.
