  • 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

          Thanks for the info Denny. When I cut acrylic I always use a skip tooth blade at a slower speed. I just did not realize that the epoxy would cut the same way as acrylic so I followed the materials list in the article.

          OK folks, picture. I finally figured out how to upload a picture. Here is one each of my version of the oak and cherry boxes. Note the axle peg holding the top in place but allowing it to move.
