Re: [Orchid] [Source] Emerald cut, deep basket wanted
Hi Sheridan in Chicago!
Why don't you fabricate your own basket? I learned to take my
stone (that had a deep belly) imbed it in clay or children's
play doh, with a little extra depth to allow for prongs. Then
pull the stone out gently, fill the cavity with investment and
let it get hard. When the investment is hard (an hour or so),
you pull the investment out of the clay and turn it over. You
now have a cast of your stone to create your basket. Cut your
wires and solder! Piece of cake!
