Default How to silver core beads Tutorial?

I would really like to learn how to do this -- does anyone have some tips? I have not invested in the Jim Moore or Retro Tools machined tools. Any tips on the old fashioned way?

Good idea Ann, me too. I'll contact Margriet to find out which glue she uses and which size mandrels.

I use this glue:



and use 4 mm mandrels, but drill the holes bigger. If you don't have a drill, then use 5 mm mandrels.

For drilling, I use this materials:

Awesome Tut!!
You can get everything you need at Harbor Freight except the tubing. They have a great deal on a doming block and punch set for 32.99. I also got the pipe cutter,mallet, diamond files and torch there so now I am off to Riogrande to get the tubing. Here is a link to Harbor freight

This is just what I needed. I've received a wonderful pandora bracelet as a gift recently and I have some large whole beads too to wear with it. I was looking for tools to silver line them. I don't want to invest on an expensive tool right now, so it's great to be able to see how it is done with this simple dooming blocks. Thank you again.

I don't believe the price of that Dome and Block set from Harbour Freight. You don't know how lucky you are in the US! I think i'll try the premade cores before I go down that road though. This is from someone who has yet to make a large hole bead but who has drooled. . .

Thanks very much Margriet for sharing your experience and info.
And thanks Evan for an awsome tutorial
And thanks Heidi for starting the thread!

Hi Red,

I am sorry, my English isn't so well. I don't understand your question.

I glue the silver caps in the bead and then they fit on a Pandora, Trollbeads, etc.

It takes 2 per bead, one for each side. Very easy. I use 2 part epoxy and have not had a problem. Just don't use too much, it squishes out and makes a mess. You have to clean with mineral spirits. :0)

Hi Kelly, the cores at allbeads4you costs 0,65 eurocent what is about 1 dollar. You need two cores for one bead.

But when you are interested, write an email to Danielle: info@allbeads4you.nl

She can help you.

Hi Kelly, I too had trouble figuring out what was what till I spotted on the right hand side of the page the English flag. If you click on that it will give you the english version.. I hope this helps you...

Hi Barb!
Do you mind giving us a quick tutorial on how you proceed to silver line the beads with the ready made silver cores? Nothing too labour intensive, just an outline; I can't get my head around it..

Anyone else that wants to chime in?
Thanks!

You can also click the link below for an inexpensive arbor press, and it has a few of the tips that work nice for flaring. Easy on the pocket-book too!

Thanks Melissa! Is this one you use? How does it compare to Jim Moore's bead press besides the price..?
Anyone else ?

This is very similar to the one I use (the one I use doesn't have a wheel on the left). And, using a lathe, my dad made me extra flaring tools for it. From what I hear, the tools that come with it work nicely. The unit is very inexpensive, and works awesome! HTH!

Amazing Tutorial thanks,
I think I would prefer to buy the ready made ones. Has anyone found a supplier in the U.S. or Canada? smiles Kerry
