    Thanks in advance for any words of wisdom!

    Hi Elizabeth,

    If you can use these garnets from a Victorian bracelet just pm me your address and I'll post them to you. I've been told they are real garnets and I'm pretty sure they are as I've fired half a dozen of them into silver clay with no loss of colour or breakage!

    I've no use for the rest of it so your welcome to it if you don't mind picking out the rest!

    Looks as if you might have had a good bargain there Lynn. If you use clay, I found they are also good put in pointy side out for fierce looking eyes. Dennis.

    I'm quite sure I don't want them Elizabeth, every time I de-clutter they just get moved from one drawer to another while I wonder what on earth to do with them, so you will be doing me a favour. Hope they are useful.
