I have a pair of earrings that are supposedly finished- but I want to modify them. They are 20 ga. AS discs with keum boo and have 20 ga. 14KY hard wires (formed ) soldered onto them. The modifications that I want require that I be able to hammer the AS disc on my bench block. For that the ear wires need to not be formed.
I would prefer not to have to remove the earwires in order to fix the defects.
Is it possible to straighten the wires, while they are still attached to the discs, by heating them?
(I am NOT worried about the keum boo- that is something I am comfortable daeling with.deal with.)
