This is the only piece of jewelry I made with the damascus steel I made last semester. Its a simple little brooch that I completed a couple of weeks before my thesis show. I like the pattern and the combination of the steel with the pearls. The steel was so not fun to cut. I ended up hacking it out with the band saw and grinding it to shape...my jewelers saw just couldn't get through it. Not sure I'll be making anything else with the damascus anytime soon, but you never know.
