When making a prong ring how do i determine the size of the prongs?
23 May 2016

Get some faceted stones, you can get them on e bay for peanuts. Then guess at the first one and put a stone in that fits. Make these out of copper or brass and keep making them and place the brass setting on the stone that fits. Mark the settings so that next time you get a faceted stone you know which template fits.

I hope this makes sense. You make templates for the stones.

My Chicago Tool tumbler is giving out. What should I do?
16 May 2016

Wrap some blue painters tape around the mandrel that turns on the Chicago tumbler. This will give it a few more months.

I get confused on the wire I want to make a piece to last. but can't afford S.S. what is the next best to use
09 May 2016

If you don't want to use sterling or can't afford it use nickel silver. It's cheap!

looking for all natural stone and wire prefer brass or gold fill would like to avoid copper coated that may be subject to ware or metals that are subject to contact dermatitis or are too soft to work with without leaving serious marks. I have seen your wire and will order next payday. I make rosaries and jewelry to entertain myself. I have used Shipwreck beads that is very close but they do not carry the best metals in the form of wire and some of their stone is getting rare. Jade class AAA stone is either in short supply or very expensive. I would also like a supplier for chain. prefer welded links and do not want anything other than by the foot balk deals. I chop it up anyway. I am always looking for instruction to make my work better.. At this point I am past being a beginner but there is always room to learn. (I am a retired economist that has nothing but time.) what would you suggest?
