I looked at the E-6000'd end caps today some, they seemed pretty tight, even the larger sterling pair. Will wait the full 24 hours before testing them much though.
Already I prefer E-6000 to GS Hypo Cement (it's apples and oranges, I'm just saying). It's much easier for me to use. The Hypo Cement is thin and tends to ooze out of the tube even after you've stopped squeezing it...I've read the trick is to not get impatient and squeeze too much in the first place...but the E-6000 is quite thick and hardly oozes at all.
I can see Hypo Cement would be better for small applications...even the smallest hole in the plastic applicator tip that came with the E-6000 is large relative to the needle tip of the Hypo Cement.
Here is a link I got from the jewelrymaking.about.com forum: The Fairtrade Foundation, London, UK. I haven't explored it yet so can't comment much, but it is intriguing. I'll have to see how many jewelry supply companies belong to Fair Trade associations...Rishashay comes to mind, I will have to do some research.
Got about an hour of sleep last night, stayed up to do the taxes and then started doing Net stuff. So I'm not sure I'll be able to do much jewelry-wise today. There's a ton of work I'm supposed to be doing at any rate (not jewelry related).
I have some commission pieces coming up, which is a bit more fun than designing for yourself. I think the ideal of jewelry is not dissimilar to cosmetics in that you should enhance the beauty of the wearer...not always easy, it's an art.
