Torch Fired Pendant III DIY Tutorial

Corrugation is a metalworking technique that lets you pleat a metal sheet. These pleated sheet can be used in many jewelry making projects as they are lightweight but strong. Torch fired enamels are a good alternative to try enameling without making the big investment of buying a kiln. You will need a gas burning torch, a steel tripod & mesh, a couple of metal trivets and of course copper enamels! If buying enamels for the first time get a sample pack of opaques, they will be easier to use than transparents (you can try those later). Learn a new set of skills. Combine the amazing texture of corrugation with colorful torch enameling and you will have an eye-catching pendant to wear. This tutorial is an instant downloading PDF file.

Jewelry Making TIP 2 - Mini Tutorial-How to make and polishing those small, pesky, fly away jewelry end caps

End caps are one of the things I prefer to buy rather than make, but sometimes you HAVE to make them (color, texture or shape needs to match the rest of your necklace.)

A “cold connection" is any method of attaching or connecting two or more pieces together without the use of heat (soldering, brazing or welding). This method is usually needed when the pieces to attach can be damage by the heat and flame of a torch. “Cold connections” can also be used as decorative elements.
