I am making a brooch which has a oval stone to be bezel set in the
middle of a hammer textured shape. I left the oval shape in the
middle unhammered so the basel can be soldered more easily. After
hammering the texture on the outside I found the whole sheet had
warped so badly the bezel will never lay flat on it. I annealed it
and tried hammering it flat with a leather mallet but with no luck.
Is there any way to save it or do I have to cut out a new one. What
can I do in the future to prevent this re-occurring? Help, please.
