I hope someone out there has some suggestions. I have small children also and have wondered about this as well.
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Rovel Watches? on: September 07, 2005 05:00:44 AM
Hi - I've seen rovel watches at flea markets and at various stores with fantastic bands. There may be other brands out there, not sure. The one I have has a great cheatah skin pattern band. I'm wondering if you can buy the watch bodies do different bands yourself. But I can't find a website or supplier for these watches. Anyone out there know of them or know what I am talking about?

Hi - I don't know how old this thread is, but it has been very helpful to me. I am interested in trying Easy Cast and using some of the molds, but I can't locate a store in Maryland that sells them. Does anyone know of any?

Great idea. Thanks!
6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / how to flatten silver wire on: May 23, 2005 11:10:00 AM
Hi - I saw a segment on DIY Jewelry making on making your own silver earrings with silver wire. The shape was made and then flattened by hammering. I tried it, but my silver ended up looking bad (scratched, uneven, yucky). I just used a regular hammer. Is there a special hammer I should be using? Or a really soft wire? Help!

Has anyone tried making silver jewelry using Art Clay? Here's a link:

I'm intrigued because it seems much easier to do than lost wax method, but I wonder if the finished result REALLY looks like silver. I'd hate to invest all the money in the starter kit and butane torch and then not really like the result.

Hi - I've just become totally inspired by a few episodes on DIY Jewelry making. I'd love to learn the lost wax method of casting in silver. I understand you just create your piece out of wax and then send it to a caster. Anyone done this? If so, do you know of any resources to learn all this? And how do you find a foundry that will just cast one ring or one pendant?

I saw this bracelet on DIY - the jewelry making show. I've been going through the episodes listed online, but I can't find it.

Wow, I'm inspired by your pictures and I want to try. But I've been trying to find some jump rings locally. Michaels has some but they list their sizes in mm's instead of inches. You used 1/8" right? What would that be in mm? Michaels offers 4mm and 6mm. I guess 6mm would be best to start since its a little bigger (though still pretty tiny).
