Filigree cloakpin by ChardwolfArmory Filigree cloakpin by ChardwolfArmory
Story: So the jewelers guild that my girlfriend and i belong too, have a few jewelry cases at the largest rock and gem show in Canada. They were asking the members to make some sort of pin or broach, so i decided to go the opposite rout of everyone else in the group and make myself a cloakpin. As one of the ladies in the group pointed out it works amazingly well as a hair tie.

Size: Outer diameter 3"

Process:
1-Designed in photoshop and printed out on paper

2-glued paper too metal with glue-stick

3-drilled holes with #70 drillbit

4-Hand sawed center area, then filigree areas with a self tensioning jewelers saw and 3 ought blades

5- hand filed the seperate levels then beveled the filigree areas

6-sanding and polished



Center Pin: Square bar aluminum stock

Process:
1-cut proper length of stock

2-inserted into vice and turned by hand with a cresent wrench to achieve spiral

3-hand filed grip area and piercing point.

How do you find the aluminum for working compared to other metals like silver or copper? I've never worked with it before and I'm curious. Absolutely fantastic piercing work also!

Aluminum is my favorite metal to work with. I am a little biased as my first industrial jobs were making aluminum railings and aircraft, so they were eye openers too what an interesting metal it is, ESPECIALLY since most people are afraid to work with it. 

Pro's: Relative to silver or copper, it is CHEEP. It doesn't really corrode, unless you rubb steel on it. it is a strong metal. light weight, so you can make things way thicker for ascetics. 

Con's: easy to scratch, doesnt hold a mirror finish. dulls blades faster.
