  • Silver jewelry

    I'd like to make some silver jewelry using my scroll saw. Does anyone have a source for silver?

    Try a Google search using the following terms:

    silversmithing supplies

    silver sheet 18 ga (or what ever gage thick you want)

    If you want to really get into silversmithing, you will want to move into the 4/0 and 6/0 blade range; these are just too small for my eyes. Try this source: http://www.silversupplies.com/catalo...ws/index.shtml
    Scroll down the page and look for Pike brand blades. I think these are really for hand saws, but should work at very low speeds. Don't use these blades on wood!

    (Need I add a warning about hot metal and wood saw dust?)

        Just curious, would you be using turquoise with you silver jewerly?...they seem to go nice together. Do you know where would one find designs for this. I have been making wooden jewerly out of various woods, and mostly using my own designs. Thanks Bob

          Good observation Scott! You found a mistake on my side

          The shop extension should read 11ft, not 13ft! I screwed up my conversion from cms to feet and inches.

          You had me worried though that I'd screwed up the placement holes for the uprights and cross beams so I just went...

          Just curious about the 13' extension. Building material, especially sheet goods are in 4' increments. Why 13'?...

          Hi folks - I really feel sorry for you people north of the border.

          Here in Central Mexico, apart from a couple of days at the end of January where we had a couple of showers in the evenings we have seen hardly any clouds in the sky during the day since the New Year and although we 've...

          Wow! - this a stunning piece!

          In particular the head is so lifelike it feels like if you got too close to this bird he (or she) would reach out and nip you with its beak....
