  1. What ring sizes do I need in fractional inch measurments, to make overlapping scale flowers with small scales? I hate directions in metrics. I don't get them.

      If you mean: http://www.mailleartisans.org/articles/articledisplay.cgi?key=150998

      The answer is: There are no easy Imperial Equivs... 16g SWG 3/8" and 1/4 *MIGHT* work, or might be WAY too tight...

      16g SWG 7/16 and 5/16 *will* work, but probably be too floppy.

      Trial and error, I'm affraid.

      The ones I make use only 16 ga. 3/8" rings.

    Help with dragon scale

    I've done dragon scale in a couple different sizes. The best one I've found (and the fastest) has been using 16 gauge 5/16" ID stainless steel for the small rings and 12 gauge 1/2" ID stainless for the large rings (I used blackened stainless in the picture i've attached below which I think looks extra cool). This lets you use the 12 gauge 1/2" rings you wanted to use and it would be a great response to "kinda small looking". lol, if he wants big, that's big. ~Steve
  3. I will be a jeweler someday. Can't wait to get more into it in school.

      Oh nevermind i got it to work, but if you click under "comment on this image" then click add comment, it doesnt work.

  10. is so frustraited when the last ring doesn't go in... and how much of a pain it is when you're workin small enough that 1/64" makes a HUGE difference.

  11. i f-in hate when rings dont work.. when a weave is too tight and being a pain in the ass

  12. can't wait to finish this customer order

  13. all of the gold fill i scratch goes into a pair of earings for my girlfriend :P, at this rate she'll have some in no time.

  14. Got my gold fill order... Its hard to tell the diff. between rose and yellow gold when together in full persian... when its 24g 3/32"
