We all know how important it is to look after our biggest asset as a jeweller - our hands. Take a look at the hand balance wrist warm up video here (as part of a handstand tutorial).
 
Make sure you don't apply too much weight on the wrists. The website suggests doing these exercises regularly to improve the strength and flexibility of your hands and wrists.
Fixing the Unbroken: New making on the vessel features the work of David Clarke (UK), Peter Bauhuis (Germany) and Vito Bila (Australia), who push the boundaries of contemporary silversmithing through vessel making. A must-see exhibition, on now at Objectspace.
