    Go back to Cookson, and they will ask their parent company. I suspect that the answer will be to extend, or even double the plating time. Dennis.

    Your wire is really too thick to use flush cutters on Emma, because they will soon deteriorate.

    No offence intended, but there is a cult surrounding specialist hammers, and most of us don't need them.

    Thank you Alastair. The colour range is limited, so I struggle to find a subject to suit.

    Surprisingly, now that I have seen them in use, it's the silver one which is the winner for me.

    Yes but you succeeded David. It's good that you are making formal jewellery that is personal and satisfying to make, but your journey might take you off in quite a different direction next. Dennis.

    Yes, it should be with frequent annealing, but I've not gone thicker than 2.5. After that, rings are generally too thick to be comfortable on the finger.

    Thank you Nick. Yes they do provide extra stability, especially on soft or thin fabric. The down side is that they are slightly more difficult to pin on. Dennis.
