Jewellery in the Making - Part Two

Replicating parts for the forma
Now that I have a perfect round template, it is time to mark out all of my components for creating the female forma

From here, you have to cut out the waste - first by drilling a couple of large diameter holes on the inside of the line and then, using the jigsaw, cutting out the waste - being careful not to cross the line, but being as close as possible.  Screwing the template to the component and using a 50mm bearing guided straight fluted cutter, clean out the waste - leaving a perfect circle.

After replicating the process with each component, I am now ready to construct my forma.

Part three to follow next week.
