Hello, Do you have any books on granulation? i see you do a lot of granulation and would love to know how you do it. Do you fuse your granulation or solder it? I understand there is no mention of this in yruo soldering demystified book.

Hi Jennifer
Not a stupid question! You just cut a piece of solder, place it on your charcoal or solderite board, and heat it until it balls up. Just as in soldering, it’s best to heat the solder pieces quickly (hot and fast) to minimize any oxidation.
I’m so glad you are using and enjoying the book! I love teaching jewelry making so the book was a real labor of love for me.If you let me know the other venue you posted your question,I’ll post an answer so if anyone else has the same question they will have the answer.

Hi – I just asked this question at another website (where your name popped up) but maybe this site is better.
I just got, read and tried a technique from my copy of ‘Soldering Demystified’. (Your technique for the seam of a bezel.) It worked beautifully and I’m very happy with my purchase of the book.
I’d really like to know where to get (or how to make) the ‘solder balls’ to which you refer. I’m a relative beginner so I hope it’s not a really stupid question but I couldn’t find the answer to my question in the book.
Thank you,

Your jewelry makes my heart sing. If only I were rich instead of adorable. I’m on my way to Amazon to check on your soldering book.

Sorry,it was a mistake I need to edit out. It is .010 fine silver sheet which is said “ten thousandts”.It is 30 gauge. Jeanette

I would also like to know what “10,000 spine silver sheet” means in gauge etc.

I think I already emailed the answer but here it is again just in case. It is .010 fine silver sheet. It is said “ten thousands”.

Please can you tell me what gauge of silver sheet you are referring to in your instructional videos when you say “10,000 spine silver sheet”. Love your instructions but not sure what silver to start with! If you could please email me a response I would be very grateful.
