Default Western Bright Cut Tutorial

Some of you may have seen this before but I know many have not. Western Bright Cut is a good style to get familiar with. Obviously its synonomous with western silver, but it can also be applied to non western items. There are so many variations that you can make it look non-western. Many of the techniques used to achieve the western engraving can be converted to fine jewelry applications.

The plates show the step by step of the cutting sequences and the basic elements in a design (scrolls and flowers). All the work is done with Flats and liners.

Let me know if you have any questions. Brian
