    Low sales :((

    Hi Max, These events are so hit and miss honey. Make sure you let people know you have made everything yourself or put a sign on your stall saying as much. Sometime people think you are just selling mass produced jewellery instead of hand-made stuff. Best of luck Debs xx

    Wire Cutters

    Also its worth filing the end of the head pin after you have cut it with a small needle file to make it smooth. Deb x

    Soldering jump rings

    Hi, I am a silversmith so always solder my jumprings in the traditional way. The syringe is good and easy but can dry up so ends up being a bit expensive. However solder strips are fiddly to apply to jumprings so paste is easier. Because the torch is not on the metal for long to solder the jumprings(very quick) it is possible to clean up the jumpring with fine sandpaper and then polish instead of pickling in some cases. However have looked at the video for this project and it does look like an easy way to solder jumprings. But if you are going to solder other stuff as well I would stick to traditional soldering and just use the paste. Rather than buy another epensive tool. Hope this helps? :-) Debs xx

    Pearl necklace help!!

    Because she said 'modern' pearls maybe do something a little different. I would associate a basic string of pearls with maybe old fashioned. Maybe thats why she said modern? You can buy some beautiful freshwater pearls in all shapes and sizes. Good luck, have fun Debs x
