    I've got one of these

    It comes with really awful steel shot so you'll have to spend another £20 or so on some stainless steel shot (again from ebay) but I've been using one of these for the last...

    Thank you. I can see it's a teeny bit off but like I say, so was the stone. I love thick bezels, I'm quite fond of using 1mm fine silver wire and hammering it slightly flatter before forming it to...

    Trying another stone setting

    So, the Unpleasantness has left me with a little extra time on my hands and I purchased a couple of online tutorials from a maker who's out in Kuala Lumpur. Very informative and clear they are too....

    Wow, what a story, I can imagine how odd it felt to see your postcard - that little disconnect between seeing an exhibit and then realising that it was originally yours. And please like everyone...

    There's quite a lot of info on YouTube particularly if you look for claw setting as well as prong setting. It's something I've not tried yet but I daresay I'll be brave enough to have a go at some...

    Hi, what a nice little space you have! I work from a little corner in my kitchen so understand the need to keep things to a minimum.

    To be honest I just try these things out in ways that mean they could be used "as is" if they work out. Then I've started the process of being able to use the idea/technique in a larger design should...

    More tiny things

    My obsession with small things continues, again as a way to use up scrap in the absence of a rolling mill. Twenty years ago I did a term of classes with a jeweller and she taught me how to set...

    I've got some even smaller ones that I've popped into what I call my doodads stash, don't know what I'll do with them yet but they're there for when the muse strikes.

    ...but they're the smallest CZs I've ever set. I usually use stones in the 3 to 4mm range for some rings that I make but I had a hankering to have a go with some really small CZs so that I could put...

    Can I ask, if you're adding jump rings to chain do you need to put the whole chain into the pickle pot? When I add jump rings I just put the section of chain that's been heated and then oxidised into...

    That looks like it's been electroformed (usually done with copper because it's cheap) and then plated to look gold. Even as an electroformed piece it looks like it would be very fragile.

    Curtis and Bellore Rashbel don't do chain like that and I'd wager that if they did it wouldn't be made in the UK. International Craft are based in the UK and they have a great range of chains that...

    That's a very good point, I think there's a bit of me that is hard wired into "pretty" and still likes to use stones. But I'll take that on board, thats good food for thought.
