In lesson 6 we were shown a variety of holding devices, to hold our work. From very simple home made clamps, to very expensive engraving blocks, which I won't be buying at this stage. We also made a bent graver out of an old graver tang, to get into the insides of rings. I love the resourcefulness of making one's own tools out of materials that would otherwise be thrown away!
Next week is bonus lesson #7, which sadly will be the last.

|More complex clamp for holding round things|

I'm very proud of this, and it was really fun to make.
