Metalsmithing Tips:
( From the Lapidary Journal Jewelry Artist April 2010.)

Moving, Stretching, and Fold-Forming Metal

"Steel makes jewelry metal move better, stronger, and faster than anything else." Use a steel block under metal when stamping, texturing, or forming.

Stretch or move? "There are two basic ways to form metal: you can stretch or compress it by deformation, or you can move it without deforming it. Anvils and blocks are usually wood, plastic, or steel, and you can use steel, wood, hide, or plastic striking tools (hammers, punches, or blocks) with them." To help you figure out which combination of tools will help you achieve the results you want, remember these two rules: steel + steel = stretch, and steel + wood, plastic, or hide = move.

"Metal will generally take the shape of whatever the harder surface is." If you strike metal on a wood block with a steel hammer, that metal will typically curl up toward the hammer.
Do the opposite: Strike curled metal on a steel block with a rawhide, wood, or plastic mallet, and the curled metal will flatten toward the steel.

Consequently, "If you strike a flat piece of annealed metal with a steel hammer on a flat steel block, the metal will move away from the hammer without curling up, depending on the shape of its face. The force of the strike and the shape of the hammer face determine how far and deep the metal moves."

"You can gently refine a curve or cupped form in metal without stretching it by using a flat wood block and a curved wood or plastic hammer on the inside of the curve or cup.

~SEED BEAD QUANTITY~

Why are seed beads sold by weight and not by the count? We purchase seed beads by gram weight and sell them by the gram weight. Metallic beads, metal vapor coated, silver, copper and brass lined beads weigh more per bead than the transparent glass or matte finished beads and some colors of glass have metals in them, such as the red, yellow and orange colors. Because there are thousands different sizes, colors and finishes of seed beads, it's impossible to estimate the number of beads per gram for each color / type or finish.

~RETURN / EXCHANGE POLICIES~

LETTER/NUMBER/PUNCTUATION Sets / DESIGN STAMPS / Wire / Cord / findings and beads are not returnable. high shipping costs; and the care required shipping a return; missing quantities / letters/ numbers upon receipt of returns; damaged and/or missing packaging issues is the reason for this policy.

Shipping is not refundable as USPS provided a service and they will not refund it.
