I use the same wire for my rivets as with the rings.

I'd advise to try both the same wire and thicker wire and see what works best for you.

Most gold used in jewelry is not pure. Pure gold is very soft, so it?s mixed with some other metals to give it strength, most often copper. People can be allergic to copper. Different colors of gold a ...

I?m pretty sure that TRL scales are stamped. This way you can cut the shape, make the hole and curve it in the same step, plus you can make lots of them with one stroke.
For homemade scales, cut shee ...

Drax, I meant that I see no reason to heat the rings, since you?ll remove the zinc this way. I always wear safety equipment (goggles, gloves, a respirator) when grinding any ...
