Lapidary Journal Jewelry Artist, November 2012

Loaded with editors' favorites, the special Tool Issue focuses on an outstanding disc cutter, riveting tool, lathe, dust collector, chasing hammers and pitch, forming mallet and stake, faceting machine, hydraulic press forms, height gauge, and the value of the iPad in the jewelry and lapidary workshops. You'll find classic and unusual vises, clamps, and other holding devices for both metal and stone, best finishing films for metal polishing, and step-by-step instructions for making an exceptionally useful bench pin that is also a work of art in itself, a new faceting design, the facts about zircon, and a jewelry-making project using torch-fired enamels. See the winners of a tool-inspired jewelry design contest and learn how the pieces were made, and learn how to keep hackers out of your online jewelry sales efforts. Plus tips, news, and more for jewelry makers and gem cutters.
