Default Sometimes making a project at cost is the best

A fellow silver jewelry craftsperson at the Gallery asked for a straight razor and I told her I had no options. She clarified that she wanted a old style safety razor and CSUSA delivered for me again. She insisted on cobalt blue so thatís what she received. I really enjoy making stuff for others as a favor. She asked to pay full price and finally accepted my cost since free bothered her. The photos are poor representations of the gorgeous blanks. I love them.

Thanks TonyL for kicking my shine up a bit, I mean it THANKS.

Love the blue and I’m really liking the look/shape of the brush! A very kind gesture, indeed!

That's a very nice set. I was almost thinking of doing one of those sets for my step-dad for Christmas. I wound up turning him and my mom a pen. Lol He's 80 now and I think he would appreciate something like that. What set did you use and where? If you don't mind me asking. Thanks!
