Happy Accidents

This is one of those designs of mine that is sort of a “happy accident.” You see, my dad is always finding these random bits and pieces of things that he thinks would be useful in my jewelry making. It’s super sweet, and what exactly he’s going to drop in my hands in usually pretty unexpected.

A couple months back he dropped this in my hands:

Okay, not literally dropped it in my hands, cuz it’s pretty heavy!

My dad is a car mechanic for race cars (his hobby) and he has a machinist friend who does a lot of work for him. This heavy metal block was one of those things that served no practical use to my dad, but turned out to be perfect for texturing copper, brass, and sterling. Now I can’t stop using it!
