I’ve tried this process a few times, and I worked on peeling back the metal for several hours only to find that I still had a long way to go. Perhaps it was because the plate was nickle and not brass…I don’t know, but I wondered why it was so much work just getting the metal off of the jewel. The few times I attempted it, I never got the metal peeled back to the edge of the jewel. I wound up breaking the jewel trying to get it out.
I’ll stick your post in my notebook as I really want to be able to work with these.
Thanks for your post – I know you’ve done several of these before.
