Re: Re: Creating Beads

Thanks gerard and Raymond.

Rounds are problematic, and I figure I can do it with a faceting machine. It would be a pain, but I have really small lots of stuff I would like to convert (NC Rutile, NC pink sapphires from Sheffield 35 yrs ago - about 300 of them). The volume would be so small, that getting someone overseas would be difficult (I have worked with Thailand before for silk florals).

It will be awhile, but I like to research. I think I will also do a lapidary class at William Holland (about 50 miles to the north). I want to at least learn to facet (I cabbed when I was a kid 35 years ago - might do that class too).
