11  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / how do i attach clamps to the ends of cord/leather thong on: January 29, 2006 06:46:31 AM
Help please !  Huh

i recently bought some 'fold over clamps' for finishing the ends of cord/thong to hang a pendant on.  i am having trouble actually folding the sides of the clamps over the cord and i am wondering if there is a special tool/pair of pliers/crimps for doing this?
or how does anyone else do it?

the clamps look like this, one is a side view and i have put the end of my cord in the other one and not attempted to do any folding, but the sides should fold over the cord:

thank you very much  Cheesy

re the "Just one question...is that third picture of a pin? I LOVE IT! What kind of backing did you put on it- a pin or a magnet?"

yes it is a pin and it has an ordinary brooch back on it - one of those silver coloured ones thats about an inch long with 3 holes in the metal bar.
i fixed it on by laying two bits of thin wire across the back of the pin/brooch where i wanted to put the brooch pin on, i soldered the ends of the wires on to the edges of the back of the frame.  then i "tinned" the wires and the brooch back separately (tinning is just covering with a thin layer of solder - flux first).  then i laid the brooch back on top of the wires and just heated the untinned side with the soldering iron - this melted the tinning solder underneath the brooch back on to the tinned wires and it stayed on !!

by the way, in the UK you can get lead free solder from plumbers merchants - you have to use it for soldering pipes that carry drinking water

hi everyone
i found this tutorial a couple of weeks ago and i thought it was completely amazing and humungously inspiring !!
have never been brave enough to post any pix of what i have done before, but i am quite proud of these and i am completely addicted to soldering !!
(i've never put any pix in a post b4 either, so i hope this works  Cheesy)

try www.craftycomputerpaper.co.uk - they've got loads of paper that you can print stuff on with your inkjet - they do shrink paper in white and black - its the same as shrink plastic but a bit thinner.
