Making square hollow tubing


#1

On the subject of hollow tubing, making square hollow tubing is a bit more complicated than just your common garden round stuff.

I got a free tutorial

http://www.jewelry-tutorials.com/making-curved-square-tubing-for-pendants.html

that shows how to bend square tubing in different shapes.

Also inlaying ele hair and setting some diamonds, if you like.

Thank you for the tutorial! I do have a question, if you’re using Ferric Chloride, couldn’t you use fine silver with the same results?

Don’t really know because I hardly ever use fine silver.

I did try it with normal sterling silver, but the ferric chloride was so slow that the silver was also ruined.

Ferric chloride is very slow.
