I’ve been off the list a few weeks due to email address change
(never knew it could be so traumatizing, thanks, Hanuman) and I have
some burning questions. I am already in high-strung Christmas mode,
please bear with me.
I need help setting some “invisible set” square brilliants. I’m in
North Carolina, USA and would prefer to send them to someone closer
rather than farther away, but I’ll send them anywhere so long as I
can get them reset. One is for a stock ring and another is for an
employee who just wants it back by Dec 24, so no Big rush:>). I’m not
sure if they are “tongue and Groove” or set in a grid. If you want to
do this, please let me know. As an aside, I’m ashamed I don’t know
how to do this, but just don’t have the time to learn right now. I
was surprised to find nobody local who can set these stones. Many
local jewelers are afraid to even size or clean these rings.
Opportunity is knocking!
I have a Dazor bench lamp that has developed an annoying… Nay,
MADDENING hum. Is there anything that can be done with this? It’s an
old lamp, but built like a tank.
I am thinking of making the transition from working for others to
working for myself. I’d like to have a little shop by 2010. What
should I be doing in the meantime? I have a line of inexpensive
silver jewelry that I produce “after-hours” and have developed a
small but loyal local following. I have most major tools, 15yrs.
bench experience, almost a GG, and I’m motivated. What I really need
to do (I think) is take business classes at the Tech. Also, I have a
dear husband who thinks he is going to quit his much-hated job and
come work for me. He is a great thinker and full of good ideas, but
is not so good at everyday hard labor… Well, don’t make me injure
his pride further. I am totally open to any and all ideas.
Please email me off list if it’s convenient. I don’t always get to
read the list every single day.
