    When I did a metal working course 20 years or so ago it wasn't called flush setting by my tutor. I remember her teaching me how to set 3 and 4mm cabochons with a hammer and punch into balls of silver...

    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.

    I am already one of Lydia's biggest fans - she's a goddess - and so I'm trying very hard not to copy the fabulous work that she does. And at the same time accept what's coming out of me. It's all a...

    Trying to get away from "pretty"

    Hi all. Something that keeps happening is that I want to make things that are a bit edgy.....but pretty stuff keeps coming out instead.
    To be fair though it's the pretty things that have gone to...

    Super pickle using citric acid and hydrogen peroxide does work, I use citric as my pickle. And it works fine to get the copper oxides off of bronze.

    I think you should. I've really missed wearing earrings and I know I could have been making them anyway, but I'm a selfish maker so creating things that I love to wear is great, and to be honest it's...

    Of course they're not for all occasions, they're for when you want to draw attention to your earrings! Thanks for the etching admiration, it's one of my favourite ways to pattern metal.
