    Pendant and Earrings

    Here is another set of earrings and a pendant. Dyed with red india ink and black acrylic paint in the cut slots. 3 coats of gloss lacquer. I have made several of these sets but the first one I tried ink on. My wife says I can't sell this set because it is hers. So now I have several more sets to make.

    Looks good Bernie. Are you finding your favorite settings with the backer plate? I found that after several pendants that I have my favorite offset holes to use. What size drill are you using for the "hole? I've tried several sizes but ended up with a 7/16 bit.

    Thanks for the kind comments. Tom I think the bit I have been using is a 3/8". I have been writing my settings down for different designs. Heck I can remember from one to the next what holes I used. My grandmother who is 101 said that is a sign of "Old Timers". So I have started writing them down. I just finished a couple more that I dyed yellow and green using india ink from hobby lobby. Was on sale for .50 a bottle.
