Newbie Help With Tiny Stones
by Linda D
(North Carolina, USA)
I purchased a packet of stones from a cable tv jewelry channel that also promotes its own Jewelry making supplies.
I love Tourmaline and so when they had this "parcel" of Pink and green tourmaline, for sale I was so excited I purchased it right away.
The only problems here is that:
(a) I am just starting out making jewelry, so am
not really experienced.
(b) I did not understand that the gems were not "calibrated" so that they cannot be set into any
common settings because the parcel I got has all small stones. When I say small I am talking about 1mm to 2.5mm.
I love the stones, except for the non calibration issue and would love to use them in making myself a pendant or earrings..but HOW do I use them??
Can I glue them somehow to something(s) with a Jewelry glue or epoxy?? Any help would be most appreciated...
