"Lotsa Lux" Pince-Nez of Winter Happiness
Wow! This restored my faith after spending a long time reading user reviews of ready-made DIY settings that apparently "don't really work on anything smaller than 6-8mm" (as if I could afford the stones I want in that size?!). You made my day.Couple of questions: 1. Above you talk about 2 kinds of burnishers: the traditional round pointed one (probably the one I have left over from school) and the "second" one that's way easier to use. What's the name for the second one? (Web search of "hand burnisher jewelry" yield seems to yield more than 2 kinds. . .)2. What state should the metal be in? It'd be easier to raise the "bead" around the edge of the stone if the metal was annealed, but is that bead maybe too soft to hold the stone securely? Or does the burnishing work-harden it to some extent? Or wouldn't these small stones load it much anyway?Hoping to click "I Made It!" soon. . .
Love your initial introduction and the pic, but I'm missing something. It was quite an exercise in concentration and I had to draw a couple of pictures to label the parts so I could understand. But if both the sliders are on the underside (breastbone) of the cat with the rings between them, then what is the purpose of the rings and how do you attach a lead?
