Thanks for your additional insight to Gerry's bead-setting article.
The point about the shape of the girdle and the burrs to use to
friction set is something I hadn't thought about, but it makes a lot
of sense. And I often use modified manicure orange sticks &
toothpicks to pack my stones, another excellent suggestion.
Now this is what Orchid is about!
