Hi all, I’ve been away for a few days in Colonial Williamsburg,
Va and have a ton of orchid mail to catch up with (250
messages!). You all know what an amateur I am so you won’t be
too shocked at my question. I have plenty of experience making
round bezels. I’m now ready to move up to triangular or square
ones. I was just wondering if any of you had suggestions on how
to create them, or any books that have good instructions. The
books I have seem to stop at round bezels. I guess you have to
somehow file the corners away before bending the bezel over them,
but I’m not sure.
By the way, I haven’t been to Williamsburg since I was about 8.
It’s so funny seeing the “persons from the past” work at
silversmithing and blacksmithing. The tools 200 years ago are
the same as the ones now. Just sans electricity. They did do
some funky things with sand molds.
As usual, thanks in advance for your advice.
