What I use to cut my sheet metal. And how to add volume to your hair.

So  I really don’t like to use a jewelers  saw.  I don’t like the feel or the sound of the saw.  So I have tried cutting shears but they seem to distort the metal too much.  So I tried manicure scissors.  They work great.  The fine tips create less distortion of the metal and they […]
