I wanted to get into making pendants and such, but with my sister in law's allergies I though stainless would be a better route. Will a Jewlers Saw cut through stainless? Which blades? Is there another (cheap) option? I have a dremel tool as well, will anything work with that?

Thanks!

jeweller's saw will do you just fine, though it wil be much slower than cutting softer metals like silver. You don't need special blades, though you will need to change them often.
