Beautiful Bench Pins

Someone once told me that "a good goldsmith will use 7 bench pins in his/her life as a professional."Above is a collection of a few Etsy Metal members' bench pins.
Amanda Conley, Lisa Dienst-Thomas, Danielle Miller-Gilliam,
Kathryn Riechert, Chris Parry, Nina Gibson,
Sophie Wiggins, Maggie Joynt, Rachael Sudlow

Etsy metal member, Victoria Takahashi recently started a flickr group entitled Bench Pin. It is open to anyone who wishes to add photos of their beautiful bench pins!

I love seeing different people's tools! And it's super cool when they're collaged all together!

I tell you what, I'd have cleaned my bench first if I'd known you were publishing this!
I love bench pegs, though (see, you say pin but I say peg...), they're like fingerprints - all wearing differently.

This is awesome. It's like self portraits, bench style.
