Rambles...
posted by Colleen Shirazi, April 6, 2008 at 2:24 PM (Pacific)

The more I think about it, the more I like the idea of using a tiny round bead, instead of a crimp (see previous Rambles...).

What I had on hand were crimp tubes. They actually don't look bad, crimped on a hoop like that, but a tiny round bead would likely look much better.

I've been turning it over in my mind about soldering. Wondering how feasible it would be to solder an earring frame, say, that already had dangles on it. Would it melt the wire on the dangles? For briolettes, I've been using a double loop at the top. It would be more difficult doing such a loop directly on the wire.
