Make a Rough Draft

Save your expensive materials and time with this tip.
Instructions
Sure, it's not always time-effective to make a draft of something if you've got deadlines. However, it can be very cost effective if you're working on a commission or a new design that requires sterling silver, fine, silver, or gold- or silver-filled wires.
You don't want to waste your expensive materials or make something your customer dislikes and then have to figure out what to do with the rejected piece.

Use copper or another inexpensive wire, make a skeleton drawing of your idea (it doesn't have to be exact or even that fancy), and make yourself a rough draft piece! Your budget and your customer will thank you for this little extra step of due diligence in the creation process.
