To the beaders of this site,
I have a problem that I hope you can advise me on. On a lark, I made
a bunch of enameled copper (of 0.025"/0.635 thickness) beads that
are 3D projections of the shapes once used by programmers to diagram
computer programs before PC’s were invented.
My wife, bless her, was intrigued with them and had some of them
strung as a necklace (double knoted at each bead) by a local
professional beader. The necklace has considerable weight, but much
to my surprise it sold. The lady likes it so much that she wares it
very often. Unfortunately so much wearing has now caused one of the
strings to be cut by a bead, and now I need to repair it.
Is there a way to blunt/smooth the edges of metal so that I can
considerably reduce the chance of this sorry event happening again?
Looking forward to reading what you suggest. And thanks in advance
for your suggestions.
