No Solder Blue Green Copper Tribal Earrings DIY FREE PDF Tutorial

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. In this tutorial metal tubing is used in a non-traditional way. The tubing is flared and compressed to trap another piece of metal, avoiding the use of solder. This is a cold connection. These hand formed boldly colored and textured earrings are original and easy to make. This tutorial is an instant downloading PDF file, it has 10 pages, a template, 20 photos and plenty of tips.

Making a bright copper cored Lampwork glass beads for jewelry - DIY FREE Mini Tutorial

The Moretti family introduced the use of copper mandrels as a “cost effective “production method of Venetian glass beads in 1920. The beads were made directly over copper mandrels that were dissolved in nitric acid after annealing. The steel mandrel & bead release combo was retaken when environmental laws made more expensive the use and disposal of copper and nitric acid. So using Copper as a core for lampwork glass is not new. This mini tutorial is about the reaction of the bare copper to the flame and its effect on clear glass. You can get two very different effects, a deep dark red or swirls of aqua blue and bubbles floating in the clear over a bright copper surface. This is a FREE PDF file for instant downloading.
