First Time Using a Jig

I made this bracelet using 20 gauge silver
wire and a jig. Since the wire flowers were a
bit uneven, I decided to use amethyst chips
instead of perfect little round amethyst beads
in keeping with the naive look.
I hammered each of the flowers before
connecting them with jump rings.
Unfortunately, between hammering and
trying to flatten the wire with pliers, I
managed to break more than one of
the amethyst centres.
