A necklace I am proud of :) by Flic
I have taken up making jewellery recently and have done a couple of pieces, but the one I created last night I am very proud of. It took about 5 hours, mainly because I was doing some joins I hadn't done before and it took me a while to get the hang of it. I would appreciate it if any body would...

How was this made? by Mick
The object in the photo is called a tsuba. It's a handguard for a Japanese sword. I want to find out how a tsuba like this is made. Was it cast, carved, or..? Here's a link to the photo: http://micknewton.smugmug.com/photos/123184715-O.jpg It's just a guess, but I think it was cast, and then more...

Soldering by Jack Schmidling
I have been soldering since about 10 years old but pretty much confined to a soldering iron. The problems of attaching gem heads with a torch seem a bit daunting. My current project is to be-jewel a silver chalice with my faceted and cabbed stones. On my practice goblet, I have been using Crazy...

Silver Casting by Jack Schmidling
I have been thinking of casting a chalice in sliver in addition to making some broach-like settings. I am set up to do sand casting and can probably finish the stuff off in the machine shop. I have a number of 100 oz ingots of .999 bulion to play with but suspect that one does not want to use...

Flatware by Jack Schmidling
Having exhausted Peter, myself and rec.crafts.metalworking, trying to solve the problem of casting a simple cup, I am ready to move on to something seemingly straightforward. A picture of my problem cup is at http://schmidling.netfirms.com/cup.jpg As always, I am open to suggestions as we...

Buying a prop-ox torch setup by C0nnie
Hi all. This is probably my first post here. I recognize a few names here from elsewhere. I have a question that many of you know at least some answers to. I am ready to buy a torch, hotter than my butane one at home. I have had the opportunity to solder at the Crucible in Oakland CA where I just...

Took a class by MatthewK
So I took my first jewelry class last monday, had a really good time. I can see why one would spend 3 months on learning to saw. :) That little jewelers saw has opened up a whole new world to me. I ordered some basic tools from Otto Frei, 2 saw frames 4 dozen blades in a few sizes. Files, pliers,...

Diameter of rod could be 10-15mm, spacing between edge of the next groove ca 3mm, groove width & depth ca 2mm (ideally there should be some...

Silver sheet? by Ian Rogers
Hi everyone, I apologize if I'm about to ask the ultimate newbie question, but I'm not sure what to buy. I was given an 18mm x 13mm 'blue paua" oval cabochon. It's very shallow, only about 1mm tall. Flat back. So I thought I'd set this and either make a necklace or a ring. What guage of silver...

straight cut on saw by Jafi
Hello All, I have recently rebuilt a 12" rock saw and I'm having trouble calibrating it for a parallel cut. It seems that as the clamp travels it tends to move away from the blade which causes the blade to bind. I have measured and remeasured and still can't get it aligned. I have realigned the...

Irradiated stones?? by [email protected]
I bought a blue topaz online at Ice.com and it's amazingly blue. I was told that most Blue Topaz is usually irradiated? Is this true? What about stones like Peridot, Amethyst, or Moonstone? (Particularly those in jewelry made in Nepal, etc for instance? ) This practice seems a bit unhealthy to...

My girlfriend bought a really unique spoon ring from a homeless man in San Francisco that was actually made from the "bowl" portion of the spoon to make a really wide full-digit ring. She had the ring for a long time, absolutely loved it, and I don't think she ever left home without putting it...

rolling mill questions by br
