I took a class at the Jewelry Arts Institute a few years back and I
remember that if you heated the fine silver, it rolled up into
itself and made nice little balls for granualtion. I’m making this
pendant in brass, and thought I would do something similar.
Unfortunately, the brass wouldn’t ball up. All it seemed to do was
turn into a steaming mass of burnt metal. Anyone know why it wouldn’t
do the little ball trick? Does that only work with fine metals like
silver and gold? If it’s possible to make it ball, could some one
please give me the heads up on how to do it.
