Heat up the silver to soften it, then the silver will be easier to be trimmed. Heated silver is quite hot and it is not easy to be used. So we will cool off the silver with cold water first to avoid getting hurt.
Now we take the soften silver to the table pressing machine. Tighten the roller of the tablet pressing machine and roll the handle. The silver will be flattened and lengthened during the pressing process.
As the image shows, we put the silver into the model and use tools to bend the silver to make it look like a peasecod. Next, we use punch socket to hammer the silver and make it with a few of circular depressions.
Before we blacken the peasecod silver, we have to choose the pearl for it first. This pearl will be used right now. The position used to set in the pearl will have to be adjusted. The blackened and polished peasecod silver will be set with the pearl we choose. Remember to use the tweezers to clamp up the edges of the silver to keep the pearl firm.
