I need to remove the handle from my bathroom sink faucet in order to replace the ceramic disc cartridge. My problem -- I cannot figure our how to grip the faucet assembly with a wrench in order to loosen the assembly without scratching the soft metal.
This problem is best illustrated with the two attached pictures.
Any suggestions? Thank you.

A old Leather Belt , for protection can work also.
I have a strap wrench that uses a leather strap.
