How lovely are your branches~
Took FAR longer than it should have. But then, I did try out some new things...
I hand-cut the rings with a jeweler's saw for my first time. Now can I truly appreciate the time and care that must be given for such quality rings T_T.
I soaked it in vinegar, then tumbled it awhile in white rice. Brilliant. This stuff started out as dirty aluminum, and now has a pretty decent shine!
