Once again, Ganoksin comes through with bunches of that
are very very helpful, and then the coup d'grace from John Fetvedt
with the chart I was dreaming of.
I thank everyone who responded, giving me new ideas about how to
develop pricing, and my husband is greatly relieved that he doesn't
have to do MY math to come up with the "How Many Rings" question.
Since I cut my own rings, knowing how many rings also was a problem
of production because, like most people obsessed with chain weaving,
I cut rings from 20, 18, 16 and 14 gauge wire and in many MANY
different sizes. I teach, and cut rings for my classes, but I don't
do production work on chains, so I needed to know about" how many
rings I could get from different mm so I wouldn't have my wire tied
up in sizes I don't need. (I'm still struggling to make 50 ounce
orders of wire, unlike everybody else on Ganoksin But then, I
also have my metal clay to buy as well.)
Thanks again, Ganoksin folks, for being nice to a wannabe jeweler
and giving me wonderful !!
