Daily Wire Jewelry Making Tip

Is it ok to use a welding compound to put a tiny object on a wire design that is not one that I want to make with a part of the wire?


By ‘welding compound’ I am thinking that you mean a substance like JB Weld. If you are good with the process of using this material and can do it in a neat fashion, give it a try and let me know how it works so I can share with the others here. Personally I prefer to remain a ‘purist’ in this art form and would figure out a way to use wire to attach the item.

    You go Dale. I am a purist. I have used cement in only a couple of my designs, and had to go and take a bath, I felt so dirty!
    I always feel that if I can’t get it on there with a piece of wire, I don’t really need it.
