I haven't posted any of my creations in a while. The photography seems to take more time than constructing the piece.  I just photographed this one for a customer so since the pics are right here in front of me, here they are for you.  The Biggs is from a slab that has been sitting in my picture jasper stash box for some time.  The sterling silver (with the exception of the bezel) is reclaimed scrap that I forged and rolled into rectangular wire.  Here are 4 different views of the bracelet.

I like the stamping.  I'm always afraid of screwing up a nice piece if the stamp slips a little bit when I hit it with the hammer.  Guess I just need to practice more...maybe on copper.

My stamps slip all the time - you just end up with a hand made look - over time it gets better, but not much. 
What gets me most about stamping is when you have a miss hit  and the stamp or your piece careens into some dark corner never to be seen again.   dunno
