DD is using tin snips here with flashing.
Here is a close-up of DS bracelet made of aluminum flashing, skull beads, sequins and glass tubes. It turned out great and the one he made later turned out even better. He used a ball & peen hammer to create texture on the second one. I just don't have a pic of it. He really took to metal crafting. Some of the ideas came from Jennifer Perkins new book The Naughty Secretary Club; The working girl's guide to handmade jewelry.
This is a wonderful book full of crafty goodness** I will write a review as soon as I finish reading it, right after making the skirt that's in the queque;)
