John the Smith - #WhatWouldItBeLikeTo

Jewellery making is a fine craft with big consequences for error. Even though the expensive materials could be remelted if the casting failed, the effort to make the metals workable is significant.

Despite that John not only decided to go ahead, he managed to create an endearing piece of silver jewellery which his daughter was only too happy to accept.

We would not suggest John give up his day job, but with a bit of practice John could make a fine silversmith.
