Hello, In your tourch fired enamel beads, how do you get the litttle copper

you do the beads. Nancy

processor - dont know if this affected my membership with you - don’t want
to loose this contact - am deff. addicted to this site thanks Aileen the
members advice has been great

Nancy, the copper tubing needs to be the size closest to the size of the
mandrel so that it is snug but not too tight. It will stay in place when
it gets heated. Frances
