    Yes, I have found melting scraps and making items quite satisfying. So far I haven’t hit them with a hammer but just chose the pleasing shapes. I usually cast into depressions or holes on a charcoal...

    Yes. Thanks Dennis. I will certainly be “adapting” a pair of round nosed pliers and use them on my next project.

    Would love to see the adapted round nosed pliers in action…..is there a video available anywhere? Not easy to envisage quite how you apply them.

    Oh! I think I will cut the tube off hoping to save the stones, then prep the area and solder on another…..having soldered the new posts on. Oh what fun! Why do some people change their minds?

    Wow! Beautiful finish. Mind if I plagiarise? What supporting compound did you use….a clear silicone?

    I am attempting to learn how to set stones, starting with tube settings. I have had problems “pushing” the silver over neatly to secure the stone as you can see in the photo. I had been advised not...

    Hi there Nick (of the gizmo/template/video fame) I have a bit of a diy website which isn’t really up to date and is a bit “clunky” and also I have a presence on Numonday. I must admit I use both as a...

    Such a basic question, I know. But I don’t want to ruin the amber. I want to mount this cabochon onto a 20mm disk of 2mm silver to make a pair of earrings. My first thought was to use a burr to make...

    Thanks for your comments. I think I will investigate getting the engraving done rather than complicate the process further. However I will still keep my eyes open for that irresistible bargain!
