I have mixed thoughts about this idea. Fact is that some of these
craftsmen are spending extra time for the setup. Asking more of
their time AND tricks (basicaly that is what they are doing) is not a
good thing to ask for in my opinion.
The crucial point is that everybody has to do something himself to
figure out what he needs in order to make it happen. All te video’s
schown are tips,acts and possibility’s given by a very genereous
group of people AND they are all for free!!! The possibility of
contacting these generous persons are even extended by asking
straight forward questions via e-mail.
If one need to draw some wire, the person need to know that you need
a drawing plate, a pair of pliers and lubricant. You can’t pull wire
with your fingers and sure not with a hammer. If all this is not
clear enough then by some books and find out yourself, contact
organisations like Stuller, Rio Grande and many more who are very
helpfull and friendly aswell.
Do not misunderstand me here, I’m not disrespectfull for the ones
who do not figure out te picture from the beginning by watching the
video’s. I’m only telling that any given from anybody in
this group should be talking with great respect without asking for
more (concerning the video’s). Be aware that this platform is
realised and organized by people which need to work for their money
spending their free time and kowledge as a gift.
In all respect to anybody, I’m very happy and pleased in order to
have the privelage of taking part in everything realised in this
Special to all the very skilled jewellers who are showing how things
are done…THANK YOU VERY MUCH !
Have fun and enjoy
