Dear Orchid members, What is the best glue for connecting a pearl on
a post? How long and how thick can the post be?
I have a large South Sea pearl and am very scared to use a glue that
might become brittle ore otherwise dysfunctional after a few years.
Epoxy used to do that, when I first started out. After that
experience I haven’t used glue on jewelry in over twenty years. So
what is the best, either high tech or traditional?
My other question concerning the pearl: Cutting off the little
blister pearls around the bottom there will be some exposed pearl
interior. Is it advisable to seal that in some way, and is there a
danger for the outside of the pearl to peel off?
Thank you for the advice. Regina
