All metals welcome and sterling is appreciated as an alternative metal
I bought some Hemimorphite drops a while ago and up until now I only made a pair of earrings with them.

The metals I used…Continue

When I retired in Mexico 8 years ago, I bought a torch and a lot of tools to start my hobby of metalworking. Well, I hated the oxy/acetylene torch because a local jeweler had a leak in his and it blew up, burning down his studio and putting him in the hospital. And, I just cannot learn from a book…Continue
I love to connect with you lot to share my creations and to learn new techniques.
I love to work with wire, being it copper, brass or plated.
I do use sterling on some occasions but only when asked to,
otherwise I love to use artistic wire.
I haven't been playing with wire and beads as much as I wanted for the past year.
I did make a few pieces but didn't make decent photo's yet,
mainly because I'm working on a new…Continue

Hi, I need help !!!! I'm having a terrible time melting copper to form a ball at the end of a piece of wire. I've tried a propane torch and a butane torch.Every book I've read says that melting the wire is possible. I've used 20 g, 22 g. At this point I don't know what else to do.. The only thing I can think of is there's a special type of wire. If any one can help me I'd really, really appreciate it.. Thanks
My latest ring design. It's simple and sweet. I love wearing it.
This one is made with a 10mm Botswana Agate faceted coin and gold filled wire.
