Great videos!!

I have one question. In the first film one sees the flower being
pierced and chased and when it comes to the granulation part it all
of a sudden has a border around each petal. I assume it was wire
that was added. Couldn’t have been soldered as they granulated it.
How to the get wire to match the edge of the petals as exactly as it
did? Maybe with some clever jig like we saw earlier in the film for
design transfer? Maybe there is a more than one question in that?

Thanks
Sam
