Put a Ball On It Tutorial - Jewelry Making, Jewellery Making, Silversmithing, Metalsmithing TUTORIAL
Sometimes a design needs a few tiny silver balls (or a group of them). Not only can they be decorative, they can also be used to hide little imperfections if needed (camouflage!) or used as a structural element to join pieces together. Whatever you use them for, they are quick and easy to make and just as quick and easy to solder to your design. While these balls may resemble granulation, this is a different technique that produces fantastic results on sterling silver. This tutorial assumes you have some basic soldering knowledge and equipment.
Includes 25 pages and LOTS of pictures!
But WAIT! There's more! Not only will you learn how to make little silver balls and how to solder them onto a project, full instructions are included to create the earrings shown on the front page.
All my tutorials are created using the EZ/Orca propane torch - same torch, different names. Other torches are just as suitable for these processes and the techniques are easily applied to the torch of your choice.
