New hammer & shotplates

I think I may have a tool addiction. Send help?!

Check out this yumminess from @buffalo_rutland_co , which arrived in the mail today. This a new hammer along with some shot plates, which I want to use to decorate some bangles.

Though, it turns out that the shotplates are going to take some practice …

Look at the amazing engraving on this hammer. 🤩 It took some time to get here, but it was worth the wait. It’s so nice to have tools that are both beautiful and functional.

Thanks to @rosyrevolver for the recommendation. I am hoping to use some of these little decorative elements in her bangle-making class, though with winter fast approaching, I may not get to it until the Spring …
