opal triplet ring resized by digicath
Hope you can advise me! I took my opal triplet ring to a jeweler to have resized. When I got it back, there was a white mark across the stone; damage had been done during the process. The store owner looked at it and said he would either repair or replace it. I called them about a week after to ask...

I've been making some Byzantine bracelets (here's a close-up of a section: http://www.thebeads.com/images/byzantine.jpg) and have been tumbling the rings and finished bracelets in mixed stainless steel shot with water and a squeeze of Ivory dishwashing detergent. Apparently one time I didn't add...

Electrofoming by Don Wagner
I would like some advice on electroforming. There is a lot of information available, to the point that I am suffering from info overload - I just want to keep it simple, and find a good technique (or a book to buy) and good proprietary solutions that will get the job done, and avoid hours...

De-Ox ster casting problem by Mark
Has anyone out there found a cure for rings cracking at the sprue when using the De-ox sterling silver alloys. I found a piece of info on the United Metals website that suggested a "lighter" investment mix as it would be "not" as strong as the mud I usually mix. I like the de-ox for its anti...

hardness of metals by m4816k
On one site on the net, I've found informations about hardness of metals. And it says that 14 K gold is about 2,5 times harder than sterling silver. Does that mean that a 14 K gold, 5 gram chain has the same hardness (strenght), as 12-13 gram sterling silver one, of the same design and...

What would happend... by m4816k
....if I would take my 14K gold jewellery, together with my 24K gold coins to jewellers, and say that I'd like him to mix those two to make a single piece of jewellery? Mathematically, from mixing 14 and 24K in the right ratio, you can (for example) get 18K gold. But, how smart is to ask jeweller...

Mercury Amalgam Gilding by Don Wagner
Another little project that I always wanted to pursue. I had an old "how to" formula book that said to make a mercury copper amalgam, spatula it over holes in old copper cookware, and then just let it set up overnight to effect a permanent repair. It seemed absurdly simple. Would it be possible...

Partial Plating by Don Wagner
I have been trying to talk a friend into doing a partial plating job for me. He refuses, saying that the masking material contaminates his plating solutions. He prefers to plate the whole object, and then buff the plating off of the areas to be left unplated. Is he using the wrong material as a...
