I want to second this! Gabe has “saved my bacon” a number of times
when I’ve foolishly accepted a repair job I couldn’t possibly do.
Funny how you hear your mouth saying yes even when your brain says
"no way!"

I have a client who has to remake a little pendant and make a mold of
it! I asked him to let me “re-cut” any areas that need fixing, why?
As this is now a second, or even a third-generation gold pendant it
has 14 little 1mm diamonds in it. I had quite a chore in removing
them, to say the least! Some of them were even smaller at .09mm’s My
next challenge was to re-cut all areas so my Onglette #2 graver and
make the pave’ cutting more distinct. I am now at present attempting
to refurbish all of the “pin-point” beads that once held the
diamonds! Why is this my position in helping my client? As I am the
setter, it is my duty to have this pendant in a more saleable
condition.

In re-shaping these beads with a #006 bud and round burs, I am now
re-cutting everywhere. This will give me less stress in setting! So
much joy in doing this!

Gerry!
