Making this piece I have learned three things.
1/ sandblasting as a finish on aluminium is very fragile, picks up finger prints very easily and needs to be handled in gloves
2/ wearable pieces of this kind need to be crimped from centre to the ends to gain an even spacing between panels and good shape
3/ crimping has to be done on a round surface to provide the right curve for the cables to sit in
