    Oh my!
    Dennis - those are absolutely delicious. So much so that my daughter now wants me to get some of 'that stuff' and make hair decorations for her. I've told her it's very difficult and far...

    The flattened curbs have been hammered and then filed to flat. There are several youtube tutorials on this (mainly in hefty gold!)

    I think I'd go for an endcap (just a basic bezel) for the top, with a jump ring soldered to the top and just epoxy into place. For even more subtlety, you could just use a small disc (not too thin or...

    I think your voice is just fine - very clear and easy to understand, and no unnecessary waffle.

    Most of the information out there suggests you can solder gold filled. This is, in fact, rarely the case, especially with fine gauges. You will almost inevitably burn off the gold outer layer,...

    Brilliantly done Dennis (though I'd expect no less). The suffragette version, which is fabulous, would do a very nice double-duty for Wimbledon, I suspect ;)

    Very nicely done - clear, concise and with the addition of gauge (and perhaps mention of presoldering rings), very useful.

    My only technical comment would be that I can't be alone in preferring to...

    Fantastic as ever Dennis. I love the addition of the hair pieces - we've seen your barrettes before, but the hairband is inspired!

    What a lucky recipient :)

    Wolf Tools wax carving set - unused

    I had to get something out of the drawer of shame, and found, amongst other things, this set of unopened, unused Wolf Tools.

    They're much too nice for someone not to be making use of them.

    I love the clasp - the necklace is a really nice design.

    However, I'm not a fan of wire guardians unless they're very discreet and hidden away. Adding a small, then larger jump ring goes a long...

    The Tuffnells oxycons are more than adequate to run a Little Torch - no additional oxygen needed. All you need to add is a propane bottle, flashback arrestor and hose.
