Tungsten carbide


#1

I am interested in hearing if any of you are making jewelry of
tungsten carbide. I am aware that a few watch manufacturers like
Rado and Movado have some designs made of it.

I have not yet made any pieces of jewelry out of Tungsten Carbide. I
often work in very unusual metals ,
and this is one that is on my list. I have actually even received
requests to make rings, etc. out of this material. I would like to
hear from any of you who have tried it, and your results. ; }

Can’t wait to see where this leads!

You maybe able to find some broken solid carbide end mills at a
machine shop or tool disposal outlet. ,They would give some different
but regular shapes when sliced and polished with diamond. The carbide
is sintered usualy in a cobalt matrix. I don’t know how well they
would look polished . Like hematite possibly. Jesse
