Chris, goldsmith and general raconteur, has been documenting some of the processes from his day to day workshop life. Hope you enjoy the films.
The metal is Fairtrade 18ct yellow gold (looking temporarily black from being annealed), which was 3mm square section half an hour ago. I'm pulling it through the round hole drawplate on my medieval-dungeon-style drawbench, and it will end up 1.50mm round, and hopefully much longer... Chris
