Sterling disc bracelets Part II

OK once I'm all happy with the hammered texture on the sterling plates, I get out my wonderful disc cutter, and make discs. One disc per bracelet I make as a washer, which will be for the toggle clasp I'm making from scratch. After just a few swipes with files and sand paper, the edges are perfect! So I dome them, and then punch the holes in them. It's important to make the holes even with each other if possible, so I use this mandrel that has evenly spaced markers on it.

Next it's time to put it all together!
