About This Class

Welcome to the Peacock Pearls earrings class! Pearls are a classic staple of any jewellery box, and I've given them a modern twist by teaming beautiful peacock grey freshwater pearls with the smooth clean lines of silver tubes. You have two earring designs to choose from - a simple pair of drop earrings or a pretty dainty pair of studs. On the other hand, why choose? You can make them both!

The main technique that we will be covering during the class is how to set half-drilled pearls onto silver. The technique is not a difficult one, but the hints and tips I share will help make certain that you create a strong firm setting for the pearls. We will also, as always, cover soldering techniques.

This is one of a series of video classes, each one showing you how to quickly and easily make a lovely pair of earrings - sometimes two pairs - as part of my #52earrings challenge. I have challenged myself to design and film tutorials for 52 pairs of earrings in 2017, and I'd love you to join me. In each video I will show you the materials you will need, explain the tools and equipment and go through all the steps needed to create your own lovely pair of earrings. Along the way I will share with you the same hints and tips that I teach in my jewelry making classes and private tuition so that you become more confident with your techniques and design skills with each class that you watch.

This class is a beginner class although those with previous experience will gain value from practising their fine soldering skills.

The equipment needed for the project is explained in the videos and also listed on a downloadable document that covers most of the tools that I will use in future earrings video classes as well so you can plan ahead! All the equipment listed can be used for a variety of other jewellery making projects.

1. Peacock Pearls - learn how to set half-drilled pearls with two projects: Hello, My name's John Tinley. I'm a jewelry designer and shooter from the South Coast UK. I'm welcome to peacock compels in this house. Hells are a classic staple in any jewelry box, so it's about time that I showed you a classic used them in this class. We're going to be using half drilled holes pearls that have had whole drills as an intra jest halfway through towards center so you can't threat a piece of wire all the way through and put a loop. But either end as you would do with beat, you have to create a host. But the past sits on top on that host also has a little bit of guru helped as well half filled piles or half your jets, because you can get gem stones with holes you're half way through. A swell are the only jewelry project that you are here. You mentioned the word blue in association with. I'm going to be giving pounds of modern twist by teaming them with short sections are pre made choose, and they are going to be sitting below the tube as a pair of drug hearings. Andi, I was one of the dangerous power of stud earrings I've made. So this class has two designs in it. Juice from Or why not make both the perils of time using our lovely peacock gray color with a lovely sheen to them. But I think keeps beautifully with Sterling silver. However, as you probably already know, freshwater pearls. Now days come in a range of colors, so you're sure to find something to sexual style. This clumps has passed. The 52 hearings changed. I set myself 2017 designed films, toils for 52 hearings, however, the council instagram on Facebook with the hashtag 52 hearings to season behind the scenes photos and hints about what's coming next. However, if you're ready to get started, let's have a look at the materials and the equipment that you're going to need to make vote of pairs of earrings in this class 2. Peacock Pearls - materials: These are the materials that we're going to need to make the peacock hell earrings. I've got two different sizes off peacock colored half George pals. The smaller pair, approximately 3.9 millimeters in diameter on the larger pair, are 4.3 millimeters. And as you can see, even that 0.4 of a millimeter does actually make quite a difference. I just wanted to give you a little bit more information about the sizing of pearls, or, indeed, semi precious or precious stones and beads as well, because there's always a little bit of variation as they are and natural substance. Andi, even when machines are involved in cutting the stones, is still going to be a little bit of variation. So a stone or pearl that is sold as, for example, a four millimeter diameter could actually be anything between about 3.9, maybe even 3.8 up to about 4.2, so it is worth asking supplies. Send your much pair wherever possible, or even better if you can visit the supply yourself and choose a matched pair. Of course, if you got the advantage of buying more than just a pair of buying a few, you can choose the best match fit yourself. The 3.9 millimeter piles right she's sold as being in the range of 3.5 to 4 on Duthie 4.3 were sold, it being in the range of four millimeters to five millimeters. Beating a smaller pair for this study rings on the larger path. The jobs there are two different sizes off stunning, so a tube onda. Although these quite long lates of tube, we will actually only be using a little bit of each tube, is one of the most expensive, always off buying silver because a lot of work goes into forming it. But a little does go a long way. The smaller tube has gotten inside diameter of 3.5 millimeters andan outside damage of 4.5 millimeters. The reality tube has just inside damage was 4.5 and outside or six when you buy two. But both the inside and the outside diameters will be listed because both measurements are needed when tubes used for stone setting. In this occasion, though, it doesn't matter too much. What size tube I used on what kind of ratio to incite outside diameter. I just choose to sizes out of my stock that looked nice together. A nice against the poles. I'm going to be finishing off this stud earrings, of course, with two stones of a stunt fitting stuck posts aunt to stone civil butterflies. Andi, I'll be making the ear wise out off, not 0.8 millimeter or 20 gauge sterling silver wire. I will also be using this wire to make the posts that the half your pearls will be glued onto. 3. Peacock Pearls - equipment: This is the equipments I'm going to use to make the peacock pearls earrings. The first thing I'm going to need to do is cut off sections of tube. Andi. I'm going to hold the two whilst I cuss it in the joint leveller, which is the red handle tour that you can see here. This tool allows me to hold the two firmly, but without damaging it so it doesn't slip about trust on cutting it and also helps me to cut it through nice and straight or level on. The reason why it's called a joint clever, that is, that it cuts things through nice and straight and level Andi, because tube is quite often used to form hinges or joints in jewelry making well, im soaring the tube. I'm going to support the joint over that on the bench Peg Andi, I'm going to see P soaring with the jeweler's saw the apron underneath the bench. Park will catch the dust so I can put that in my scrap pushing. Use it, recycle it at a state, going to use the ruler Onda, a Sharpie, to help me initially work out how much tube I want to cut, and I'll also be using those at later stages in the class to mark out why that I want to cut as well. I'll be using my bench drill to drill some holes in the tube. That's the ear wise for the drop. Hearings on the posts for the Powells are going to be put into. I'm going to be drilling the holes with a no 0.8 myr me to drill bit before I start soaring off sections of the tube, though I want to make sure that the end I'm working with is nice and straight, nice and square. So I'm going to use the engineers. Set square to check it on and the six inch flat file to five. It's square if necessary. Once the sections a cube cut, I'm going to use the Emery paper just to sloughs off the ends. And to make sure there aren't any rough sections. The pearls are going to be glued onto the posts with a two part epoxy glue on designs that use half your pearls are going to be the only class that you will ever hear me mention. The word grew in the rest of tools that you can see here are going to be for forming the ear wires on the drop hearings. I'm going to use the wire cutters to cut the wire on Duthie flat nose pliers, nine on your pliers and around those supplies to finish forming the ear. One I'm going to form the U shape Bend the ear wires around, set Mandel on the front section of the ear while to be hammered, likely with a plan ish ing hammer to give them rid of extra strength. And whilst I hammer, I'm going to support the work on the steel bench, block with the leather cushion underneath to support everything and also help to keep the noise down a little bit. And to make the ear wise but more comfortable while you put into your ears, I'm going to use a flat needle file to smooth and round off the ends of the wire. This is a soldering project, so let's also have a look at the soldering equipment that we're going to need to make the earrings 4. Peacock Pearls - soldering equipment: This is the soldier equipment, as I use for all of my smaller projects, such as earrings and sore pendants, everything sitting on a couple of slate tiles, a heatproof surface to help protect my desk on my work sits on a couple of soldering bricks , soldering blocks, while some heating it up. One of these soldering bricks is made of a softer material than the others. Because it's softer, it's picked up some dips and some cracks in it. It's being used over the years, and these could be very useful for supporting work that isn't completely flat. The charcoal block is there because I melt small piece of scrap. On top of that on. Do they form nice of my balls as I am used to decorate my projects when I need to pick up my work or to support it whilst I'm soldering? I used reverse action tweezers that you can see here and have also got a pair on a stand through 1/3 hand, and it's there when I need 12 on extra hands to help me out. The blue handled stick is a soldier pick on and that I used to push soldier move it about to make sure it it's exactly what I wanted to be. Soldier usually comes in strips or sticks. Andi, I've got three different melting temperatures here that I using combination for different projects. The soldier gets cut into small pieces or Palin's you ting. The red handles snips as I keep those little pieces in the labeled boxes that you can see do. Make sure that you label your boxes because once a soldier is cut up, you won't be hard to tell which is which. Melting temperature. My curl over the ends off the sticks of solder so that I can tell which melting temperature they are, the more cold over they are, they're higher. The mountain temperature, bright yellow liquid is a flux. Solder won't actually flow out through the joining unless you use a flux with it. Andi the paintbrushes. What? I used to apply the flux to the joints in my work, so he was also available in a paste form, its ground up soldier that's already mixed with a flux, so you don't need a separate flux. In fact, if you were toe adds the yellow Fluxus, I showed you it would stop this soldier pace from working properly. It's most commonly available in syringes with small tips that she can see here. You can also buy it in tubs and pots, just like with the traditional sticks or strips of soldier, so the pace is available in three different melting temperatures. Easy, medium and hard. I've just got easy and medium here. The easy is the one that's 268 degrees sent rate for amounting temperature. The medium is 732. Recent weight. As you can tell, the easy solder paste, is a favorite newer than the medium soldier paste. When you have a new syringe, it's best to pull back on the plunger after you finished using it. Otherwise, the soldier pace is going to continue to snake out of the tip a little bit, and you don't want to waste it because this is actually the most expensive way of buying soldier. I like to use the solder paste on projects like chains on door, so hollow beads sometimes might use it on sucking rings if I'm in a bit of a hurry, because one of the advantages sort of place is that the soldier usually stays exactly where you want it to be. Unlike the sort of Italians that can jump off as you start to heat the metal up, small projects like hearings only need a small blowtorch, and I've got two different makes of those here. Both of them are easy to refill with the gas that comes in aerosol cans since the same type of gas butane gas that you use to reform cigarette lighter. At the back of the picture, you can see a so cooker that Scots a very mild acid solution. Good safety pickle in it. When you heat silver up, the surface becomes not darker and dirtier looking that some of the capo in the study silver reacting with the heat and auction flame to forward cause copper oxides on the safety pickle cleans that copper oxides up. Before you put your work in the safety pickle, it needs to be cooled down or quenched in a pot of water. Andi, you need to put your work in and out of the safety pickle with brass or plastic tweezers, not the stainless steel ones that I showed you before, and thus, but definitely not least are her safety glasses. You've only got one pair of eyes. Look after them carefully 5. Peacock Pearls - cutting the tube: before I start cutting off slices of the tube to use in the earrings, I want to make sure that the end to something start working with on each piece of tube is nice and square on. If it's not, I'm going to file the end of it by six inch file. So so I'm going to do is use the engineers where going to push the tube up against the handle, slide it up to the top. Andi might just be on to tell that I'm twisting the tube around on Dwell. Some doing that I'm looking to see with their any gaps between the top of the tube on the bottom of the straight edge. Here on this one is nicely done. It's nicely square. I don't do anything with that. That one's ready to be cut into slices, so it's trying. With this one. This one's not bad. Those needs a little bit of fun. It is a teeny tiny bit higher on this side than here, so teeny probably wouldn't be able to tell what's holding it up again to see the Engineer square a teeny type. So I'm going to do, I feel watched my bangle making class this but will be quite familiar because what I'm going to do, just treat this as if it's, ah length of silver. So I'm going to make a bangle off. Hold it on my bench pink. So what a nice right angle here, as I hope to file parallel up against this side of the bench Pake and just file going away from me. I know I'm holding everything at the right angle. Remember, the files only work in one direction. So if you to go back within four words, it wouldn't actually do any of the work. They could put more marks into your silver. Just a few strokes. The father Andi, please. A little bit more. So what harm here. But what you far the other way? It sometimes happens. Well, it's better, so I'm happy with that. So what I need to do is cut off two slices off the smaller tube for the stud earrings. Andi cut off two sizes off each for the droppingly, so in total got two sizes off the sicker. What are bigger tube four slices smaller. Andi decided that I want to cut off slices that close to formula makes is as I can get them because the piles air about four millimeters. I want everything come pretty lined up pretty nicely. So I'm just going to use the ruler to allow me to use a Sharpie to put a line. But full minimum each is Andi. But I think the joint lover here put the lid back on the sharp because I won't need that for a little while. Now. The joint lover, the tube, It's house in this section here on the handle comes across this cause of thumb guard for me to be able to hold it in place. But it's got a wider area here that allows me to sit on top of the bench pig. It's actually the only tourist I've got that is designed for someone he's right handed to host in their left and to cut with their right like what? Students who hold it like so if they're right handed and it seems to work nicely for them, too. So this line here I grew here is where the jewels so is going to go. So I want the pen lines are drawn to be lined up with that that groove, which is not at the moment. It's a bit too far this site, so I'm going to undo the wheel here. I went under too much, so it still takes a bit of effort to pull this stop around. I'm tighten it up so this screw tightens up against the slider here was put a stop for it once I can move it back with him forwards, and that gives something to brace the tube up against. So now that that set, I can cut off slices that are all close, like a making of four millimeters decisis that are going to be a place I could make it the same height with each other. There's a tiny bit of wiggle room in the inside the groove, so there is always a time and variation on each side. Us up with the file. I do so after everything so together and show you how to do that. But it allows me Justo only measure the 1st 1 keep the stopper set up for or the others Andreae then so off each in turn so that that's all held in place. I just realized. Actually, my slate has got a bit too much given it. So I'm going to tighten well, top. That's how I put attention to my blade on on this. This one that is better. Everything back together and stop story. There's the first slice cheap. You've seen me during one push the tube up against the stopper. Again. I'm going to carry on cutting three more from the smaller size on two from the bigger tube that speed the film up a little bit. - So then we have six. Slight is a tube well close to the same height as I can possibly make them. So the next stage is that I want to start drilling some holes because it's going to be a lot easier to do that before the different sections the hearing are sorted together. 6. Peacock Pearls - drilling: I paired up my six pieces off Tubas. I cut off. Those longer thinks he's still before, so I've got a pair of smaller ones. Here is I'm going to use for the stud earrings, a pair of larger ones, another pair of smaller pieces of tube, and those are going to make up the drop earrings in this past the class. We're going to drill the holes in the to Andi. These holes are going to be drilled so that we can put a little bit off no 0.8 millimeter round wire through the holes on, then sold them in place. Soldering a wise this way in separatist. Butting the wires up against the tube is going to give a much, much stronger soldier. Join Andi. The pieces of why that are going to go on the two pairs of smaller tube are going to be the posts for the polls for half your pals aunt to longer wires that are going to be sold it into theme. Bigger pieces of tube are going to fall, the ear wise, I should be able to see that smaller pieces of tube have got pen marks on them, and I've used the very fine nib sharp it's I've got on and the ruler to mark the midpoint on those pieces of tube on. Then I've actually used those as a guide to drill holes on this, you might be able to tell the not exactly to the 0.1 of a millimeter right on the cross that was marked, but they're close enough, so I need to drill those on door. So mark these and drill thumb. So that's what I'm going to do now. I'm going to need to move the camera out so you can get a view of what I'm doing and not just a view of the tube, but I want you to see a close up of the peace tube with the marks on first. Now, as you can appreciate, trying to line up something that is round next to a ruler so that you can put a mark on it is not always the easiest thing to do, especially when it's tiny. Remember these pieces of tube or any four millimeters across? So the best way I found to do this is if you push the tube up against something, So in this case, against the Clampett of the bench. Block. Bit of my my bench. Paige clump. Um, I've got the ruler next to it, and I've lined it up at the end of the ruler. Andi, I moved the ruler rather moving the pieces to buy. It's you found that easier. So it was going to do now is use my fine it by ultra sharp. What? Or ultra fine Sharpie. Just to put a market. The two millimeter point Because, remember, these are four millimeters long. So right now we got to see this bit very clearly, but you see the result of it. So it's quite put my finger there just to steady it. Well, I hope you see the mark there. Andi. Do the same with the other one. Get everything. Line. Don't nice seeing again. Just don't hold him. I didn't want to push it down so much shooting out. I lose that. Ever go scrubbing about on the floor for it that has been known. Every guy says Mark started. So what I'm going to do now is again. Just use a Sharpie just to go straight across a piece of tube to put your to finish the mark. So those are the crosshairs, if you like, of where I'm going to drill the hole on. That's the witch that I'm going to show you next. What? You need to move the camera first. I've got my bench tool set up with a no 0.8 millimeter Drillbit because I went to drill a hole that is thes same diameter as my wires. I'm going to be poking through them just because that's going to give a really tight join for soldering. So a thing you can do to make your soldier join the strongest possible is worth doing. As you saw earlier, I've already drilled the holes in two of the piece of tubes. I've got four left to do Andi, the same as with their putting the marks on these. They are still very small round, not necessarily easy to hold pieces of silver. Andi, I do want to make sure some holding them safely and carefully because firstly, I don't want to drill bit to slip Andi foothold in the wrong place and ruin my Peter Silver Andi. Secondly, I want to make sure the obvious is more importantly, that I went to make sure that my fingers are safe. I can recycle the silver and yet another piece of to put if I have my fingers said so that's not so good. So my trick when I'm drilling small bits of tube is to use a pair of nylons, your pliers. So I'm going to do I'm gonna show you this now, because once it's actually on the bench, drill is not going to be so easy. To see words get lined up is such I'm going to hold the tube in between the night on Jaws. I'm going to move it a little bit so that that crosses right at the top. So I moved back into to view for you that crosses right at the chop and that the pliers Ah , that's better. Uh, the tube is held at the bottom of supplies. So hopefully, as I move that about you'll be able to just see in the light the cross marked on that piece of tube. So what I'm going to do now is going ahead and drill it. So you actually want to see the tube? What? It's Hyundai have to trust me. It is there. I'm going to first of all, make sure that's the job it is lined up properly on. Then turn a drill on. I just guide the drill bit through when I can feel that it's gone through the first sight, the tube. I'm going to lift it back up again on this particular project I don't want to drill a way through. So here we go, taking the time to make sure it's lined up. You can really feel when it has gone through that, that first side of the silver, so one down, three to go do it is exactly the same with the other three line up pieces of tube. What you charmingly during this, it's worth taking time to do it properly. Now that I could feel was slipping round. When it is just turning, so stops the drill, lined everything up again Any way there we go. I wasn't holding firmly enough with the plies on my first attempt to doing that piece of tube again. You don't want to press two hard because you don't want it to go shooting out, but you do want to hold it firmly so it will take a little bit of getting used to that. So it's worth just practicing gripping it first. One more today. Check. First. It's lined up for pre, and then is always more like it happened. When I'm demonstrating some things I need to have second attempt something, but least it shows you that you can put it right. So again, that just slipped a little bit, Theo. Okay, so that's no, I put them up here and see them. It's approved to You haven't lost any of them. Six pieces of tube with holes drilled in them. The next stage is to solder the short lengths of wire in place. 7. Peacock Pearls - soldering: I've bought the four pieces of tube over to the soldering station on dive. Also cut some pieces off no 40.8 millimeter around stunning silver. While I've cut four very short pieces about seven millimeters along which will actually be longer than we need for this project. I've also cut to longer. You can see them here. 5.5 centimeter pieces. I've already set the four shorter pieces of wire up in the smaller pieces of tube already. Remember those? They're going to be the posts that the half your pearls going to go on and to set them up, I put a little bit of medium solder paste on one end of each and then put that end through the hole. Just pokes just maybe a millimeter, if that through into the inside of the tube. And the reason I've chosen to use Soldier Pace for this project is that some of the pace would have got pushed through as well, even just Keeney Chinese amount. But that will help the soldier joint. But I've left the two large police YouTube on Duthie bigger pieces of wire to set up now so you can see that I leave those two because you actually had to see what I'm doing with these. You probably just see my fingers holding things I wouldn't go to good enough view. So I've got ah, hole drilled, sit, shining about catching like differently there. Andi, I've also put on the end of thes already a little bit of medium paced already. So all I'm going to do This is where it's a little bit more friendly. She went through easier than I thought it would, because remember, I'm doing a Georgia no 0.8 millimeter hole on, not 0.8 millimeter. Why? So I'm getting very tight fit so you can see what the why is poking so just a teeny tiny amount. I would need to know that up with files later. So good put carefully over there. Why do the same to this one? By the way, I did have a few burgers around the holes left over from drilling with an electric drill. You're actually more likely to get those alive. Don't just brushed them off. I didn't tidy up the holes in any other way because I'm going to be soldering into them, so I didn't really need to. So, again, every guy. So I've got six soldier joins to do on six separate pieces on I spread them out a little bit so that, as I saw each one in turn, I'm hopefully far less likely to melt anything next to them. The pieces of tube are actually quite thick pieces, so they are extremely unlikely to melt. I'd have to really, really overheat scenes that would be very obvious. However, the pieces of wire sticking out are a little bit more vulnerable. So when your soldering do carefully, watch out for those. So you're going to be watching for the right flashing that this flow out of the liquid soldier. But also do keep an eye that those pieces of wire aren't getting to read. The longer pieces are more vulnerable than shorter ones because they just hit hard with hunger that Maura thumb that could catch the heat house that the flame I certainly because these are the sore pieces can be using small blowtorch. I'm going to heat up around each one. In turn, you might see through the, uh, binder in the soldier pace burning off. Nothing unusual. In that sense. I see a little bit of a green flame or heat up around each piece, is he? Suck gently on, then brush across Teoh, heat up everything evenly, and then get soldiers route and teaching up around 2nd 1 Now, out of the two piece of silver, the tube is the bigger piece. So I'm not gonna put some extra heat on that one. There we go. That was actually really obvious 11 Um, as the soldier melted, Peter Weir actually moved. Almost has snapped into place nicely, but on both of thes, I can see a nice live soldier around that joint might see. It is slightly slightly, Shania. It's been obvious on this one, I think, on that one. So I'm going to continue with these two and then move on to the ones with the wise A service The soldiers dismount flowing out Take the heat away. No point Keep You don't know any longer way Go. We've straight onto these, almost ignoring the fact that sufficient Why there stop because a piece of soldier fellow. So I'm actually now going to show you a little bit of ah, more advanced trick. It's called dumb pick silvery when it's the reason why I like to have a pick in one hand and the other hand there, that sorting the blowtorch so that I can do this even necessary. It's not that common for sort of pace to fall off. But you see, there it is. It doesn't every now and again. So what I'm going to do is holds the pick up against it is actually some excess flux on the pick at the moment, always up against it. Andi mounts the piece of soldier onto this talks and pick. Tungsten is why special in that soldier will not float into it. It will only sit on top of it. And then when I touch it in place when the silver is at the right temperature, If we get drawn into the silver off the pick se, you can see there I move that around little silver ball on the end of the pick, so I make sure I can get designed up to everything. We're going to swap hands so flame can come from this side and I got better control with my right hand is I mean right handed with the pick that so I can get in like so have things at the right temperature Touched the soldier to the silver I stayed on silver now way go. So what happened when the silver was virtually right temperature Was that soldier preferred thing to sit on the silver? A supposed to sit on the pick? Um And then as we got up to solving temperature, it flowed nicely. Has done that joy nicely. Well, so be nice if this piece sage how I've set it up and say it in place. But it's nice to show you a bit more violence trick every now and again that wanted stand face. So I've got 12345 six pieces to with bits of wire sticking out of them. Those are going to go in the quench practical down and pick up what to clean up. And then my next job will be to clean up the little bit off wire that's sticking into that piece of tube or pieces of tube 8. Peacock Pearls - filing inside the tubes: the pieces of tube with their length. So why? I know, out of pickles, they've beans rinsed on given a careful Farai, like at the moment, the they're the ones remind me of garlic. So I think we need to sort to that out soon have their polls on and they look less Dolich like What I need to do in this stage of the video class is to tidy up the peace. Oh, wire that's sticking inside into the tube. It had to be there to make sure that I was getting the strongest soldier. Join us. I possibly could. But now I want to get rid of it. So I got a couple off needle files here. This one's over. This one's round both tape hoods. So I'm going to use those two in combination to file inside. Let's move those out. The weight is concentrated. This knowledge a one at the moment so I'm going to do is hold the tube like so finger of thumb. So hold it Here, start filing there. What we have actually a place in this is going to get Ben tattle recognition, so I need to hold it firmly. Andi, keep fighting until it gets a lot shorter. So at the moment, what I'm finding is that piece of why I'm not touching tube, but the moment tour turn around from your side as well. I have now and see the silver just my finger. And even if you can't see, the piece of wire was inside, You can see from the silver dust I have. I should be doing something. What's the stage now? Where That piece of wire is almost flush with the tube. So don't carry on with this file because I don't want to get the edges of the oval shape diggings the tube. I want to keep to the nice curve with cheap, so I'm gonna change too. A super one on this time isn't just filing on the piece of wire get sweep across a little bit in the same ways I would is if I was cleaning up the inside of a ring. A bangle can take it from your sized. Well, to make sure is nice and even. Yeah, right. So that's the 1st 1 done to do You have a five. Don't just keep finding a way. By the way, do stop and check That was a shorter piece. Didn't need such long Farley 22 biggest one stung. So about four little ones to do. I'm sure just about get global and they're a little bit off with that. I would be able to get a decent fish just by using the Oval. But because I've got a nice round needle files available as well, it is a little bit easier to use for this last stage of firing, so I got it. May well use it. Lost one. This is what you will see. It is very sore. This one's got a bigger piece sticking up, So take me a long shot. She's sticking up so far, taking up so much space in the that we're gonna go straight for sore file. I liken visiting a bit. Better get this one in now because this one's a little bit easier to use. Is it not a wider surface? He doesn't solid off the top of the piece of Why so much? - This one's that she couldn't example about why you shouldn't have too much wire sticking to the middle of the more You got sick in middle. We'll hear what you're found off. We'll get that day. All right. Yo, that last, right? So, one to three for something a little bit like Daleks. But we'll soon change that. Six pieces of tube with the wire. So she in place neat and off any on the inside the tube. So now what I need to do is soldier those together 20 drop hearings on and soldiers stuff fittings onto the back close. 9. Peacock Pearls - soldering the stud earrings: I've got one pair of smaller tubes. Onda, Pair off, sir. Fittings over on the soldering, Brooke because it's now trying to sell to them together. I'm going to use easy soldier solving together here. Just remember, have taken the tip of the syringe off my easy sort of pace to because it was so small that I'm great difficulty actually pushing the pace through it. But I'm going to use easy solder paste. I used medium to put those posts in place. So by easy, easy, soldier, I'm not going to remote the medium soldiers join on. Personally, I don't like to mix the side sold Italians with solder paste, so stick with using paste. So it's gonna be one of these out of the way because I don't I need it on the bridge at the moment. Andi, it's going to hold it in a pair of red nose River section tweeters. So it's how securely on dup further but knows because my hand is felt he's held a little bit further away from the action away from the heat. So going to put a little bit of a soldier paste on there. Oops. Okay. I didn't do something that's so sort of do. Sometimes I don't do it by going to this time, I was gonna melt that paste in place on the end separating. That's just making sure that's the piece. Isn't going to get smeared. Of course. Um, something else I'm going to do, making sure that these aren't too hot to touch the fine. Just going to put a little doctor with Sharpie Went to do that before I started heating. That's a good job. I I stopped at this point. Just gonna put those for Mark with a Sharpie on the opposite side of where that posters. That is where I want this start fitting to go. She's gonna give me something to aim for. Remember, Sharpie Mark will be burnt off before I get soldering temperature so it won't Affleck affect the flow of soldier. So it's going to double check that. I've got everything lined up to my satisfaction. Shy half was good. This is going to take very much heat. No. Put a little bit of heat into the hearing, bring start fitting into position and then Karen heating for a bit more to get the soldier to re flow Hey, guys, I said, doesn't take very much heat. A tour of their Sopher steering her carpets and quench pot on Dhere told the 2nd 1 again, holding river section tweets is a little bit of medium. So to paste go smelt like in place. Great. Move across just a little bit. That's in better view because it doesn't, sir, Does it show off amazingly well because it's so small on this fire break. It's just just, uh, two similar color We go. Yes, The 2nd 1 shows up a little bit better against the firebreak now, is it, sir? It's dirt here. There we go. So that these we quenches well, they both need to go in the pickle to clean up, and then I will need to adjust the length of the post, so it it fits of her 10. Peacock Pearls - soldering the drop earrings: it's the turn of the drop earrings now their turn to be sold it on. Dso just have set up one hearing at a time I've got You can see through the bigger piece tube with the ear while they're on and the short piece of tube a simple accident like Adar like it won't in a moment with the what would turn into the post for the half your pearl on the end there, I've also it is part of the pick. I put a sharply mark opposite each piece of wire because those are the marks that I went to soldier together. As with the stud earrings, I'm going to use easy solder paste so that I don't remote the medium solder joints on because I personally don't like to mix the side soldier with the paste. So just going Teoh, use the pick. Actually, just scrape postoperative medium soldier or out of the So I said that Easy soldier. Rather after the syringe on and I'm going to put that on the side of the tube leading down for much that Scharping Mark Major. We'll see it there on and to think line that up can see on the mark, turn the brick so that I can see it straight just to make sure everything get lined up nicely. There is only a little bit of flexibility, the wise you can bend them one way or another tiny. But if you find that you've got out of alignment slightly now, the unusual thing that you might see sitting on the brick over here he's a penny. I found that if I didn't have a penny propping the ear y up the rates and later that year while I was making a large piece of tube tip backwards. So I've put it there to support everything. However, that doesn't mean that there's a bit of a heat sink there, something metal that's drawing the heat away from the silver away from the joining. So I will need to put a little bit of heat in that, being careful not to put too much heat into the works that I went to mount it a little bit of heat into that last, so heating up a bit here and whilst I'm soldering, I'm going to make sure this I've got the sort of pick and my other hand so that if things do shift about, I can shift them back. - Okay , I did just move that one cross ever so slightly stopped it from smoothing round on. And that's really good. I can see I picked up the tweeters. I can see a nice size soldier or the way down on either side between those two pieces of tube. Um, what I didn't want to see was it joined only at the top or the bottom. It's joined all with way down so that solidly together, it is worth doing a reliever banging tests to make sure it is soldier together. So that's one partners in question watch and set up the other one so seems before going to get it, is he's so replaced a little bit too much, that's better. And I'm going to put that down side to the tube leading down from that. Join, by the way, before I go and use this soldier pickle another project. I'll give it a quick wash and dry just to make sure that there isn't any access solder left on here because they don't want I sent you, transfer it onto something else. I don't have to spend time cleaning up. I understand now. This time I'm going to use my tweeters to the nine atop on. The reason for that is that there's still residual heat in this penny, and I could feel just like that. My fingers close and even touch any things on the Serbian touching pain. But as I brought my fingers close, I could feel just a little bit of heat coming off that silver. Silver is a fantastic conductor of heat, so it doesn't take long for the heat from the penny to travel on silver to that of Peter Tube. So that's why I'm using Treat us this time. Turn everything back because that will allow me and you to get a better view with a soldier . Join that will shortly be there on time to soldier. Secondary especially didn't think it's gone quite before, so just keeps everything gentle. Port. Um, just a little check, But yes, it has sold did nicely and again I can see in nice lying soldier don't there until there. Now it's all stay together when I back it against the soldering brick, sometimes the most basic tests of the best. So again that needs to go into quench practical down in the pickle pot to clean up on. Do I need to sort out the post to make sure it's the right fit for the Pearl? I'm also going to do a little bit of filing to either side of those two pieces of tube because where is with the stunt earrings? It's just one piece of tube. It's too. With these. I want to look it, make it look nice and smooth. I want to make sure that I haven't got one Peter tube a fraction higher than the other. 11. Peacock Pearls - filing the tubes smooth: these are the drop hearings straight out of the pickle after they've been cleaned up after soldering Andi. There's one job I have to do. Before I could even think about finishing off the ear wires, his armpits here on sorting out the post for the pearl of the bottom. Andi, I've come in a little bit closer than usual, so you can see more clearly what it is I need to do. You should be out to tell that this hearing at the back is nice and shiny with top safety. My Move it around in the right. Um, this hearing is still dull straight out of the pickle, this one I've filed at the top. That's why shiny this one there is ever such a slight difference to be talking about. I know less some 0.1 of a millimeter difference between the two pieces of tube on. That's because no matter how flat I think my brick is and how well I think I've set everything up, that can't help but be ever such a slight difference, sometimes between the the heights, the tube onda Also remember that in the joint level, eyes that is holding the tube. There is a little bit of wiggle room that in the section that the blade fits in. So there is room for a tiny error. But I went to see if I can get rid of that era. So what I've done, you can see on both sides of this piece. I filed both sides, so they are now nice and flush. So this one is done. It needs a little bit tight ing up with some emery paper will do. Once I filed the 2nd 1 Andi, then it certainly is the y sorting out in these polishing. So I put that to one side. At the moment, this one have actually started a file on the back. You can see where some sections are a bit Shinya some sections of dull I need to keep going until it's shiny all the way across on both sides, just as the other gearing is. So I'm going to move the camera so you can see a better view of how we do it. I'm going to use my flat, six inch file to do this job. You could use a needle fine stead, but I like the wider, longer surface area working area that this is going to give me. But if you go, you got needle farther than that would do the job nicely. Andi, I've got this position. So the handles you can see is haing slightly off the desk so that the fire itself is flat on the desk on day I'm going to do is poach the hearing flat on the file and put back down towards the handle. Now remember, the fire keeps and finally works in one direction. The fine silver are still moving in the right direction relative to each other. Doesn't matter removed file or the silver just going to change direction. So going to move that Why rapper Little Better don't want the wire to get caught on the file. So I just bent it up a little bit, so it's out of the way. Don't be bent very much. I just took a chick every now and again to see whether it's als shining, which isn't just yet turning it around every now and again. It just helps to make shorts. It's like even all the way across. Oh, Mr good ones don't shiny all the way across now usually same to the other side. But I'm just gonna bend that you are ever so gently up a bit so that it's now that pointing downwards towards the file. The lighter patch on the file, by the way, is some silver dust building up. Even that silver dust ends up in scrap parts like you say nothing else twice. So every now and again I get annulled wide brush on just clean. The silver that's built up in the grooves on file helps hit file in good condition on and make sure it's a recycling as much silver as I possibly Can we go? Yes, I didn't take so long for some reason. So that's or four sites off to hearings done that always see those files that so that filing does have some some marks on there. So I'm going to do. And the reason why I still got this and shot isn't going to put some every paper on here. I put it on the bench, brought part off the clamps that hold my bench Paige in place because that's a really nice hard surface behind the Emery paper that's going to make sure that these sunny thoughts. We're gonna go little bit quicker that way. So I've been to do is just read right around again, just like the filing of me. Now again Hoat hearing a different way from a hiss as even as possible. So I'm doing spend the top of the way again. What I'm doing is just getting rid off. The far marks one dumb back out the way again. So the ear why just end up being Sundhage doesn't need to be done that way. Hey, that's what we're talking about silvered us so we can see a lighter patch on the Emory papers. Well, even that's got its over Dustin it So my Emery paper. I don't put it in the rubbish bin when it's past its best. Even that ends up in this crackpot. I've just changed the same. I've got to stud earrings here, although they didn't need any filing because obviously it's one piece of tube No. Two pieces. You don't worry about having to file down there, but just what I've got the Emmy paper out just to get rid off any marks left by Sobel Age just again going to give them a little bit of sand, right, So to Stutts and to drop hearings. What I'm going to do next, it's sort out the posts that the polls are going to fit onto. 12. Peacock Pearls - preparing the posts: the posters. I sold it onto the earrings, pearls, the two posts here on day. The, uh, shorter bits of wire on the studs here are definitely too long for the pearls. But I find it easier to sold the wrong bits of wives longer, so they are easier for me to handle on. Then shame them down to the right size afterwards. Unless I'm going to do in this part of the class. I fought back over the two pairs of pearls. What you small a pair here? Solar power panels, people stud earrings on the ever so slightly larger to remember. There's only 0.4 millimeter difference in diameter, but they are citing knowledge. Appeals for the drop hearings on Distancia. Put them on top of, ah, let of a plastic box because it's very easy for them to get lost. I have learned that from experience, so it's always best to, but beats like this in something that is going to hold him. Hey, be a little bit more securely. I've also got Show P why cut is and a Rula uh while the week ruler, considering the little bits of why that we're going to be cutting, but it's got nice, clear markings on it, so that would be very useful. So what I'm going to do is take each hearing and turn each pile in, turn on. And but we'll put Pearle firmly in place. You can see that Post is definitely to know. But with my what for fine Sharpie I'm going to do is Mark just stunned Denise. So I do not want to leave that one on there, so I don't get the files muddled up. By the way I'm doing this. I'm making sure that I'm keeping a pearl over the, uh, apron that's underneath the bench paid down here. So if I do drop the poll, which again has been known, it's going to land somewhere safe. It's not going to go rolling about the floor to two smaller ones now And make sure fun hole two smaller ones don't go on very far. Holds off deep, but it doesn't actually need to pay most well, finding the whole I'm not that she ever slept about. Put him back down again. Sometimes it sees your seem to do to actually predict back down wealth and moved about in your fingers too much minimizes the chance. Future Peanut. That's the last one. He's sharp you just to do it for Marcus, Close as I can underneath the pile that so four from Dumb put that down before I drop it and put it leads back on the Sharpie. So I'm going to do again. It's just take one at a time. So some are gonna make sure that I put the pills in specific places so you can see there's a Sharpie mark. I get that back into focus for you. You see a Sharpie march of stairs or moved about in the light. So what I need to do is to measure how awful down that goes. That is two millimeters that links there. So what I'm going to do, it's moved the ruler now down to the bottom, but sharply back out again. I'm going to turn the post round so that I've got a clean, better muscle to mark rather than bit. That's already got a a Scharping, Marconnet, Andi just going to prove that out the way. So I don't knock it and I'm going to Marcone. So I tried to hold a see. You could see it as well, not the easiest thing to do. Maybe that's a bit better. So Mark again. Two millimeters From this end, this time that's better. So? So we can't put up. Just done. I put the power down. I'm marked underneath the Po, and that is the mark on this side. Either measured that distance so that links of why between the mark that I put underneath the pole on the tip of the wire is the distance into the bottom of the whole of the pearl. So that distances how long my species silver needs to be. I don't want it to be too long. Otherwise it would end up sitting something more like that on the hearing on too long a post. I also don't want it to be as much as I can make it too short, because then I'm losing out on a little bit of strength on bond. I may I don't really want to do that. So I worked out that distance is to millimeters, so I want Once I've trimmed this off, I want this Peter Y to be to millimeters. So then I measured two millimeters from the bottom piece tube and that's where that mark is now. So, no, as I trim that both, I might have to do a little bit of tidying up. I might eat a file a little bit extra off so he goes out of the way on the whole on Pope, back on again. I do need and you can see that. So with wires sticking up, I do need to trim a little bit texture off, so it's going to come in with file. It's easier when it's only that amount. To use a file check again, it's best to check. Come on, hold again. Especially check, Um, frequently wealth and take too much off by accident. Tying a bit more, Don't know why. Holds off beats always sort of could find. But there we go. Here we go. Such a nicely fitting so that pearl now sits nicely on the bush of the era put down to say about of you. So I now need to do the same with the other three posts I need to measure how far into the pearl the y goes, and then that Use that measurement. Help me trim off the weiter. That's that. Thanks. File if necessary to get it just right. And then the post will be the right length. One last thing I need to do to take the power back off. He's such I'm going to be using glue toe hold the pile in place on the post, although it's a very nice snuck fit because it's a no 0.8 millimeter hole. Onda no 0.8 millimeter piece of wire. It's not going to stay on on its own. Eventually it would come off, so I'm going to use two part epoxy grew to hold it in place, but because is a vice nice, snug fit. If I was to put a piece of glue on here, put the power back on and push the pile onto the post. That glue would be pushed down to the bottom of the post, and it wouldn't go between the post Onda pile toe. Hold the pole in place. What I need to do is to make a couple of indentations or notches on the post, even though it's very tiny Andi. As I push the pile onto the post, the glue will stay in those notches. There's not. She's will provide a little bit of space in between the post on the pole, The glue will stay there, and it will hold the pearl in place now is quite a few different ways of doing this. Some people use a triangle needle fire with a shop edge to it. My preference is to hold the post in the wire cutters now not pushing, not putting pressure when I'm doing is just holding them there. I'm going to twist the hearing on the post in those wire cutters between the jaws, the wire cutters and what that does, I can feel it with my son. Nail it. It puts a little groove on the post. I'm gonna do the same. But further up, I'm not pushing with the Custer's not putting pressure on them. I'm just aligned to hold around the wire again. I could feel two groups there on the post, so that's all that needed. So that post is now prepared. I need to do the same with the other three. Andi. Then I need to prepare the wise or drop earrings. All four posts are now prepares. You can see none of them are very long, especially the ones the studs on the smaller pounds, but that is all that's needed to hold the piles security in place once a group is there as well. Now it might be hard to see that the $2 repels are in different corners on Day one. Was ness once wasn't L? Because the stem on this one is to sell a ble larger longer than the one on this size? I got short long to remind me which way round they go. These there was no discernible difference between them. So the next job I need to do is to finish off the year wise. That's going to involve a little bit of hammering. So I'm going to make sure I put this little lid off pearls in a safe place. So it's not going to get shaken about by hammering. And so those piles stay in their corners and I don't get the muddled up 13. Peacock Pearls - earwires: the first step in turning the air Wives is to make sure that otherwise that from them are nice and straight. What we see. I am going to be bending, I'm sure, but I want to make sure that there aren't any. Kinks are unsightly Ben's in the same museum, pair of nine on your pliers that will allow me to pull the wire straight but won't with any marks in it. And it's also a very good test of the soldier joined here. If there's any weakness and soldiers or there's certainly pulling them Zeiss straight with the other night on your place would bring that light. But it's far better for that to be seen. Now the later on next they want to do is double check that they are the same length. While there they started out. It's the same length pieces of wire I've known, if you remember, threaded them through the holes in the tube and they went through a slightly different links. So I am ago. I'm not surprised at all that this one is ever so slightly longer than this one. So I'm just going too much going to from holding together. I'm going to sit across both at the same time. But I know definitely no now, definitely the same length. So nothing I'm going to do Move the wire cutters out of the way on. Know your clients as well. I don't need those. Andi, remember those two little scraps? Boy, they'll end up in this. This crackpot later I'm going to do is use the middle section on the septum. Mandrell, too, turn the wire around now these are pretty much because there's no difference either way around. There's no one side. That's nice. Certainly other if their worlds that then I would have that side facing out. So it was on show, but there wasn't really so I'm like that Links drop maybe a little bit shorter. So she was short in this section. Bend this round a little bit. I go quite dainty. Drop hearings are making here happy with that. So I was going to push base of what? The back around to finish off the U shape and I was always making a 2nd 1 takes a little bit longer because going to part make it and then double check so that I think can just double check. There's no nice societies are facing out. Start to put the bend in. Would it? Up against me? Can see. Definitely. This is too long. So I'm going to do put it back on the mandrell. This front sections too long said, this is a sex. I'm gonna push around the mandal a little bit more. Just push it down with my thumb check. That is a good match back on the Mandel finish spending round that way. You just double check is what? That we're checking again. Because at this stage, if I found out that I had got it wrong, then I could pull your friend e here was straight with nine on your pliers and try again. However, the next stages, I'm going to be hammering the front section of each year wire. And once that's done, I can't really pull them straight because I'm gonna have a deformed piece of metal. So said hammering is next. So I've got French block were clashing hammer. Just hammering that front section puts a bit of extra strength in the ear. Y just one thing at a time of strokes doesn't take very much. Okay, so no that sort of springer that's holding shape better. Two things I do 1st 1 is I'm going to use the straight nose pliers, just the wits of supplies that pulling that back, flicking into the air wire out if I show you the to you see, it does have a nice circum or professional finished to look on again, just that wits. I always use the same pliers for this. Always use the wits of the prize so that they will turn out much ing. So last thing is I need to do before putting these in the tumble to polish them. Issues needle file to meeting and smooth off the ends of the wire because otherwise, be rather uncomfortable going to the house in your ears. You can also get a tool called a cup ber or burke up to do this. Pretty aliens just twist it round. I didn't have a couple of those, but I much prefer using in your file. If you prefer using a burke up saying, by all means to go for it, use your fingers as well as your eyes. Remember to make sure that that end is nice and smooth. Okay, so I've already put the stud earrings in the tumble polish up. I'm going to add the's in as well on. Once everything is nice and shiny, I will show you how to put the pearls on the posts. 14. Peacock Pearls - gluing the pearls: both pairs of earrings are nice and shiny. Andi, I've done absolute everything I need to do to them. So now it's time to talk about how to mix up on Do Use the two part epoxy resin group that I used to secure the half your pearls on their posts. Two part epoxy glue is a lot easier to get hold off than it used to be. You can get some runs. It was expensive. Other runs history quite cheap, Andi To build it, even the cheap ones. I found some really, really good results from on. This is actually a fairly keep runs just from a pound store on you can see it comes in a two section syringe that you push the plunger a relatively have my almost equal amount comes out of each novel, so you got one part is theme epoxy. On the other heart is the hardener mix. The two together start a chemical reaction. That means that they will actually start to harden. Different makes have got different work times and different setting times. This one, I find it was what time of about five minutes, and it sets really well within half an hour. So for me, that's a kind time scarce. I like it means I don't have to try and balance something awkwardly for too long whilst it's drying. But I have got a little bit of working time, little bit time to figure about with things if I need to. I always work on paper, towel or piece of scrap paper. Andi, I also need something to mix the reason onto some of those out away ever so slightly. By the way, I still got my two polls in their labeled corners for the slight longer post on the site. Shorter post here somewhere. Move those generously. Don't move out of their corners. I've also got a couple off bent over interested pieces off binding. Why left over from from other jobs. So I'm going to use these for mixing up the epoxy resin. But does take the lid off this lead, by the way, can only don't go on one way. So it doesn't become contaminated. But a piece of scrap paper here and I'm just going to push out. Let me I go. You see the lead back on nice and safe, but you should be able to see a equal amount of each coming out shining in the lights. They're slightly so I'm going to use one of the twists of binding wire to mix that up, go around around and then back in forces well, to re make sure it's is evenly mixed as possible. Let's just say you have to work fairly quickly, cause once it's mixed up, that's it. Now I'm going to use the other twist off the binding wire on but I'm going to do is just take a teeny, tiny bit on such a drops that you probably won't even be able to see on the end there like a dewdrop, really? And just put a tiny bit on the end of that post, and then I could find the home. Okay, push the pile in place. I would like to give it a bit of a twist as well. One. I'm taking the drops from the center off the glue. A puddle of glues have mixed up, by the way, and not the edge, because the edges aren't going to be that evenly mixed. The other hole. Little bit of gloom to work quite quickly with this, so doesn't set the 2nd 1 on Andi No stud earrings as well. So go in the middle on. By the way, I used a different twist because chances are if I use the first twist of wire to put the glue on that again, the glue on there wouldn't be evenly mixed. This one's a little bit more freely to do, so small. Okay. Three. This is a nice designed to deal with it. It's, um, they can just lay down nicely. I don't have to prop them up in any way. Sometimes you have to prop designs up on the against boxes. You fall over E go. So that's all four pearls put on their posts. It's going to put them back all the lead here, so that I can then move them into a safe place without having to handle them too much. So very last thing. Any sushi? These He's just wait for the glue to set. And whilst that's happening, it's what I tell you a little bit more about. It's about using epoxy glue.
