I need a cool way to store jewelry and keep it both functional and displaying. my jewelry is like art so i kind of want it shown off as well as organized.
Is such a drill obtainable in Canada through Home Depot or similar company? How much?
I have searched everywhere and cannot get any info on this. I am trying to get instructions on aking real (natural) rose & natural flower and leaf jewelry. I have seen these for sale, but there is never any info on how to do it. They are still in their 3d shape and some even remain soft and pliable. I think it is down with resin , poly resin, or acrylic. An example can be seen at: www.firemountain.com after you reach the website, in the search box enter item # H20-7497JW I am also posting a photo for you to see. As I said, there is NOTHING on any sites with instructions. Thanks so much, Patti Meadows

I want to melt metal, preferably silver, to stamp in the process of making jewelry. I want to know the process and the materials/equipment needed.
Please, send me weblinks to cheap webshops for jewelry. I really love making my own jewelry but I can't find any cheap stores. By sending the links, you actually support me in making more jewelry instructables :) An example of a necklace I have made: https://www.instructables.com/id/mulicoloured-pendant/

The 123D jewelry contest has been missing from the contest page for 2 days. I can still access the page if I use the link on my "you page" where my entry is listed. The judging was supposed to be over on the 17th (after it was changed from the 15th). When the judging started, I saw that one of my ibles was a finalist, but did not receive an email from Jessyratfink alerting me to this as I have with several other recent contests. My finalist entry has an award icon on it and it has not won any other contests. All of these things are odd, and I was just wondering...What's up with the jewelry contest?

Hello, I am a beginner in jewelry making and I was wondering if it's possible to make a soldered frame around my airdry clay pendants or wrap them with coppert-tape and solder?

My boss recently purchased all the tools from a jewelry shop that was going out of business and subsequently has a lot of tools that he is parting with. While these are primarily jewelry tools many of them are perfect for prop building. He has some nice workbenches, casting equipment, benchtop laser welder, a large polishing station, plating rectifier, rolling mills, benchtop lathe, flexshaft motors/handpieces, microscopes, engraving tools and all kinds of small hand tools. There's too much to list here- I have a complete listing of everything with photos and pricing. Some of this equipment is pretty big/heavy so local pickup would be preferred (Boulder, Colorado) but he said he'll ship equipment if need be. After downloading and viewing the list if there are any questions just message me and I'll try to answer them as best as possible or have my boss email you. Thanks!

On our wedding night my wife and I had a bottle of Vieve Cliquot champagne. I still have the topper that holds the cork to the bottle. I can imagine it being made into a bracelet or pendant for my wife but would have no idea how to go about it. If anybody has any ideas I would appreciate it. The topper has a portrait of the widow cliquot on it and reminds me of a cameo. Our five year anniversary is coming at the end of this month and I would love to make her something out of this for it.

I'm just starting out but most of the instruction I've seen on soldering (jewelry) talks about flux, the solder itself, and a torch or soldering iron. When soldering copper to copper is there a special flux and solder to be used so that the solder doesn't look "silver"? Does it matter whether you use a torch or a soldering iron?

I make jewelry and would like to cover some small jewelry parts/ findings/ charms with sterling silver. The parts are made of copper and some of brass. I would need to do this in my home. If this is possible, how do I go about it? What supplies and equipment do I need? Thank you, Laurel Martin

I left some jewelry sitting on top of my microwave, and when I picked it up again, it was magnetized. Is there any way to demagnetize it, or undo this? Thanks!

Our group at Autodesk is thinking about making an app to help people design custom jewelry, since the current options are slow, expensive, and hard to use. If you've made your own jewelry or worked with a pro to have a custom piece made, our summer intern Kristen would love to pick your brain for 15-30 minutes to learn what features would be most useful to you in a jewelry app. If that sounds like fun, just reply here and Kristen will contact you to set up a phone or Skype chat. Thanks!

Ha, got yer attention with that subject didn't I?But it's true. Check out Margeaux Lange's site for more pictures. These are strangely gorgeous...Clearly she's got the jewelry-making skills to do a top-notch job but I think someone with as much imagination but less metalworking skill could do a reasonable imitation.

The stone attached to one of my husbands tie tacks came off--it was glued on. I think the reason it came off is that he was out in the cold a lot that day. Does this sound reasonable? Is there a glue out there somewhere that is not effected by temperatures? Thanks in advance!

I make jewelry and I've managed to fill a copper loop with tainted glass. I hold the copper and glass in the hottest part of the flame of my little butane/propane torch. But when I try to do the same thing with silver wire, the silver melts before the glass does. I guess that is because silver isn't such a good conducter of heat. So I've tried to heat up the entire peace of silver (instead of just the little loop that I'm trying to melt the glass on) , which works a little better. But even if I do get the silver and the glass red hot at the same time without the silver melting together, I can't make the glass adhere to the silver like it did to the copper. Any tips?
