I recently bought an Aquaflame. It’s like owning a small, slightly temperamental dragon at the moment, but one of the side benefits of buying her, is that I had to do some rearranging in the workshop.
So this month’s #Scraphappy doesn’t involve silver, it involves more traditional scraps 🙂 and fewer words than usual, coz it’s very simple 🙂
I have used a cocoa tin, the inner of an old slipper sock and the top of a Kilner jar that’s too corroded to use again for preserves.
Stone setting is a specialist skill, that requires specialist tools. You might remember an earlier post where I created some bezel pushers from different scrap; today I repurposed stuff from the bin to house my collection of pushers more safely.
And yesterday we repurposed some plastic milk bottles at the allotment to keep the nets (and #LovelySue) safe from the stabby bits of the posts and bamboo canes.
Oh. and here’s the finished ring you can see in the peg. It’s a remodel for one of my regular patrons. The four stones are 4mm flat backed cabochons and are: faceted green amethyst, green tourmaline, london blue topaz and a blue topaz.
