Steampunk Bracelet Class

I took a class on making a steampunk bracelet.  The teacher's sample is shown above.  I was on the waiting list and received a call two days before the class that there was room so I grabbed a few supplies and off to class I went.  The coolest thing was learning how to etch metal.  I was hoping to have a finished bracelet but cleaning, etching, stamping metal, cutting and filing takes a long, long time.  We all got to use some specialized jeweler's tools.  I think I might use the pieces for necklaces instead of turning them into a bracelet.  The pictures are from stamps and the center link is a watch part.  I had no idea it took all day to make a few tiny little squares.
