Hello Everyone, While gathering from Orchid members on
how to improve my bead and bright, and pav’e techniques (thru
improved tool preparation and handling), I have just been made aware
of a bright cutting technique called “fishtail” or "cut down"
method. )(Thanks to Karl and Gerry the cyber setter’s website).
Gerry the cyber-setter’s website gives quite detailed instructions
on how to achieve this effect.
However, I can be easily confused, and I have not quite been able to
get a mental picture of what the end result looks like. (I guess I
am more of a visual person).
Is anyone able to refer me to a textbook, or website, (or something
else) that would have an illustration of, or a piece of jewelry
which incorporates, this particular technique?
I would be most appreciative!!
Best Regards, Julie Balonick P.S. Thank you Alan, Phil, Carla, Hideo,
and Niels for taking the time to help me along.
