Hi- so I have some beads that are rough cut carnelian. They are kind of rounded discs, and the holes are really jagged and ugly where they are drilled. So I thought i would spruce them up and got some "filigree" bead caps-- meaning pieces that are flower or leaf shaped that are flat that I thought I could bend down so that they sit pretty flush to the bead. I was wondering if anyone has any words of advice-- I know people use filigree pieces to wrap stones and cabs, and I am not having much luck with mine. They either look crappy and not bent right or I don't get them to bend flush to the bead. I was just wondering if there is a technique or tactic for more successful.. filigree.. bending.
Thanks!
