i have a little secret....


I found that by buying these washers from Vintaj Brass Co., and doming them in my doming block,  they become the most perfect little bead caps on the planet. I know, that's totally cheating. ;)
Shhhhh....

Don't tell anyone!

  1. Not cheating, but rather ingenious!!! I received a doming kit for Christmas, but since I don't have a cutter to make discs (and no money to buy one) the doming kit is kind of useles---until now. Thanks so much for the tip!

  2. I prefer to call it "spectacular creativity". Sounds much better. :)

  5. I just got my doming set last weekend and I have been doming every round piece of metal I can find because I don't have a cutter yet. Thanks for the tip!

  15. I've been hammering copper washers for some time but don't have a doming block - this inspires me to get one!

I'm sorry to have to turn on the word verification here, but I got fed up with spammers comments!
