#1

Looks like there is room at the top…

My list of additional tests for “Grandmaster” in metalsmithing

Make complete set of bench tools for following projects:

Design and make 1 placesetting of sterling flatware.
One matching holloware item.

Alloy 2-3 gold color alloys from 24k- make gents intanglio crest ring.
locating and mining gold gets extra credit.

Outline for comprehensive jewelry book- complete one chapter
including line drawings, photographs and one engraved copper
plate as illustrations. (completed book must eventually be
published- extra points if it makes best seller list)

Salemanship-
Convince famous national figure to take leave of absence to become
proctor (in interest of national security?) and award crest ring in
payment for service.
