When I first got my jewelry tools... Now the drawers look completely different and have transformed as I use the tools and they got arranged according to my working habits. No pictures of how they look now though.

Raise a cup!

Fill the cups with plastic, heat up to melt the plastic and form the cups while the plastic is not yet entirely solid. The forming of the lid and the cup needs to happen simultaneously to make sure the forms fit.

Oops... gloves stuck on there when I was trying to remelt and remove the plastic.

Immersed in liver of sulfur and then sand off some parts of patina.
