Thank you to Alan Revere, C. Gruenwald and Timothy for their
wonderful suggestions on my questions about creating a brooch. I
have gotten the rendering approved and am ready to proceed. I
did not get any responses to the three questions below and I
still need help - any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank
you in advance. Sheridan
When I send it to be plated (I believe I want 18k) - do I ask
for a particular depth of thickness of plating?
Do you know where I can find nice half-drilled faux pearls
in large mm sizes? I thought it might be difficult to find if I
only want to order 2-3. Might I have to drill the pearl myself?
What glues do you use to glue the pearl to the post?
Can you recommend mold makers, casters, providers of pearls
in San Diego, Southern California, or California? I was hoping
to keep the work close to home so I can share the progress with
her (I’m hoping to get through this and still have this friend)
