On Tuesday Steven Cooper came into our class to tell us about his work. He is a jeweller he has a shop called Aurora in Orkney. One of the things he told us about was his tools. One of the tools was the triblet he uses it to make the rings round on the inside. There is also a tool called engraving tool it engraves the runic writing on the rings also Steven has a tool called the leather hammer which he uses to hit the ring so it gets its shape. Then he showed us a needle file witch filed the jewellery down. The last tool he showed us was his pliers which he used to bend the silver into shape. He also showed us his magnifying goggles which he uses for locking really close up at jewellery.

The silver came in shapes and sizes of stripes. In a video he showed us how he makes jewellery. First he made the silver into a ring shape with pliyers so he put the ring on a machine that polished it when it was done he used a silver solder To join the ring he said he has to be very very careful because it is hot. He finished it off with ruins carved with the engrading tool it said health and happiness.
