Aloha, I’ve trolled the orchid forum for a few months now. Just
wanted to add my $.02, And hopefully get some help. I run a gold
wholesale business with a retail tool and supply division on Oahu,
I get stumped daily by some of the questions my customers pose to
me. I hope you may help with some of them. My father is a jeweler and
my uncle runs a similar gold wholesale business in Van Nuys,
California. So I’m pretty well versed in the theory, if not the
practice of gold smithing.
I do have one question some of you may be enlightened on. I’m
looking for an oval bracelet mandrel to sell in Hawaii. It has to
have a total circumference at the fat end to accomodate a 9.5" piece
of metal. I have the round mandrel. Any suppliers you may know of?
I’ve called India and Italy. Nobody wants to touch it. Pleased to meet
