    Anodized Aluminum Earrings Question

    I will usually just use stainless steel earwires. They don't necessarily match, but you also do't have to worry about any allergic reactions.

    SCA question

    You don't need to get a membership for your son. My daughter is two and we still have not gotten a membership for her. Most events that we have been to it is free for children 5 and under.

    wedding rings

    I would say that whatever you decide to use that you use at least half-hard wire.

    Super Shiny Anodized Aluminum

    To get BA rings shiny all you need to do is tumble them or wash them with soap and water. I haven't had a problem with any of my BA getting dull.

    Having a serious issue...

    You didn't say how much chain you got for the $75, but www.metalliferous.com has stainless steel chain.

    How do you store your supplies?

    I have been using the craftmates containers and I also got the carrying bag. I have kept the bag preety packed with finished pieces and my containers and haven't had a problem with anythign breaking. My only problem is I don't know how to store my finished pieces (which are pretty much only jewelry).
