I’m just getting into cleaning, polishing, modernizing and
converting vintage jewelry
My goal is to convert pins to pendants for chains and convert clip-on
and screw back earrings to a pierced design. My guess is that I’ll
need (1) A home cleaning system (2) Tools and a glue-removing
solvent (if one is available that is stone and mounting-friendly) to
remove old hardware; and (3) Home use soldering equipment and
supplies (4) Hardware to solder onto backs of mountings to convert
from pin to pendent; and (5) Information sheets regarding the above.
Please provide recommendations Thank you very much for your help.
