How To Make A Firefox Necklace
September 19, 2010 Leave a comment
I found an interesting video at YouTube today. This is a really nice project for people who loves Firefox web browser. This video is posted at MakeMagazine’s YouTube channel.
Make a silver Firefox pendant using some basic jewelry making tools and turn your favorite web browser into a fashion statement in this week’s CRAFT Video. To get the foxy template, check out Tobi Leingruber’s Foxbling on Thingiverse.
I used rubber cement to affix the template to a piece of 18ga. silver sheet, and used a small saw to cut out the shape on top of a jewelry maker’s bench pin, which is that fork-shaped wooden surface you see in the video. Finish it up with files and a lot of sanding using a flex shaft and slotted mandrel. The same flex shaft can be fitted with any number of tools, like the tiny drill bit I used to drill the pendant’s jumpring hole. I got most of the tools and supplies for this project from Rio Grande, who also buys back my scrap metal.
