Oh, and the reason I said to limit yourself to etching squares or
rectangles that are precut if you have no metals training is due to saw
safety and torch issues. You can etch the rectangles and squares and
just keep them flat if you don't have hammers, vices, torch and setup
for annealing/soldering. It's pretty cheap to buy copper or brass
squares. We used 18 gauge for the bracelets, 20 gage for pins. You do
have to anneal (heat to red hot) metal in order to be able to hammer a
bracelet. I know this is choppy, but I hope it helps until I can get my
real plans online. They will be more step by step and in order, lol.
