A while ago on Orchid there was a discussion on how to make crown
collets. Co-incidentally I was working on two How I Do It (Hidi’s) on
that subject. Finally, in a fit of lethargy, I finished them.( it is
low season here in St Maarten)
This is the way I was taught how to make them. I am sure that there
are many other ways to do them.
Mr. Supin mentioned that he also knows how to make them. It would be
very interesting to hear of different methods and designs from
the,ahem, older jewellers on the forum.( the assumption, maybe
incorrect, is that the younger jewellers would buy them in) I have
searched the net for different designs and found surprisingly little
I was probably not looking in the right places, though.
