1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / where to start? Resetting my mom's opals. on: May 15, 2015 10:27:14 AM
I have some opal jewelry in ugly settings I want to reset. I got a quote and figured I could do it myself for the same price and learn something new. I'm just not sure where to start. I've been doing some research on the setting part but before that, I need to get the stones out of their current settings. Since opals are soft stones, I'm concerned about scratching them. Are there any suggestions for that? Is there anything I should know? The earrings are in 4 prong cornet or crown settings, the pendant is in what I think is called a bezel setting.

When it comes time to set the stones, I'm less concerned. I have found lots of helpful tutorials and videos for various techniques and products. And I think I may get some cheap manmade opals and silver settings to practice with first.

These would be special occasion stud earrings, worn a couple times a year at most. Not frequent wear earrings. 

Any advice or pointing to resources to learn more is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
2  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Looking for info about fabric and heat... on: November 11, 2013 09:32:42 AM
I want to make a strap for a crockpot, to keep secure the lid. It'll be a gift and I want to make sure they won't burn down the house if they use it while the crockpot is on, not just for travel. I'm unsure about fabric choices and am wondering if anyone out there has a suggestion. I'm thinking wool, maybe... Hoping someone out there has some knowledge that could be helpful...Thanks!

Voted! My geek-ness doesn't run deep enough to recognize the character but it still deserves mad respect. Also shared it on my FB page to try to drum up a couple more votes. Because this kind of work should be recognized...Love me some Walking Dead but it would be seriously sad if something of this caliber lost to the Rick Grimes guy.

So for these first three, I got some cheap holiday tags super cheap after Christmas last year and...yeah.

I grew up with a woodstove for heat! I sure do miss it... We always made these for our use and some for family members who also had woodstoves. When the summer rolls around, save your cartons and you won't have to buy them next time. Also, cheap candles burn faster. We kept a shoebox box that various wax odds and ends would go into through out the year. Broken crayons, candle bits...We also got wax bit and carton contributions from other family members. My aunt makes them now and they use sawdust. Also works great.
