I have started working with copper with SS decorations. My question
is about the copper. ( I have worked with the SS before) Copper
seems to have a “texture” when sanded. Is there a special way to
sand and polish copper. Mine came out nicely but I feel there are
techniques that I am not aware of.
Soldering the silver decorations on the copper as well as the bezel
for the stone seemed easy enough but I would like to here or know of
a source for on working with the copper to prepare it
When I get my “rolling mill” I want to embed the SS decoration into
the copper after it is soldered in place unless it would split the
copper. The copper may not take this type of work but I hope it
will. This way only the bezel would be “sticking up” and I could
"finish" the piece before I solder on the SS bezel.
I would like to see some ideas for a neckchain that would go along
with the copper/SS motive. Any home pages like that?? Or who does
this kind of Neckchain??

I can get my rock things all in one place so I can find and use what
