1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Sterling silver double hoops-pics, finally! on: September 18, 2007 01:21:20 PM
Wow, it took me forever to take pics of my favorite earrings. I admit, these have been done for a few months...but I still love them best!



 

I made them using flat sheet 20g sterling silver and after cutting, sanding, filing, and shaping, I soldered on a sterling post. YAY!

Anyone else get into metal working?

2  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / grommets-split back destroying fabric. i need advice! on: December 20, 2006 11:52:00 AM
i've been using grommets (set with a grommet plier) in some of my designs. the back of the grommet splits in about 8 places when the male piece folds over to attach to the female piece. this creates rough edges that end up ripping the fabric eventually. does anyone know if smooth backed grommets exist for personal use? i've searched so much but haven't gotten anywhere. would hand-setting them have a different outcome? any suggestions aside from filling in those rough edges with epoxy?


*yes-this is a double post, i posted in handbags too. i'm desperate.*


THANKS!

i should mention that i'm using large grommets (3/8") and the dritz plier tool. the grommets look like these:



perhaps the splitting has to do with the size of the grommet?
