Tips from the Smart Ass Jeweler..(Yes I have the mentality of a 13 year old!)
1. When using your chasing hammer, always hold it by the ball. It gives you more control over it. Do not hold the shaft. Tee-hee!
2. Not jewelry related but a great tip ( just the tip)…when making meatloaf and using an aluminum pan, always slap the meat to pack it into the pan. Remember…slap the meat.
