Merry Christmas and Happy New Year all

Millers, I hope all of you have a jolly Christmas and a Happy New Year. Things to ponder in the new year.... Do fish get thirsty?

One thing you will soon discover is there are not established CD's or workbooks for the MDX-15, because on this forum Jeff and the many millers "write the book" with exp...

Inspired by idea

I have been inspired by this idea and am exploring New Testament quotes to use as a faith trigger for wearers of braille jewelry. This may have been done, but what an idea. From Saint John, we get the idea; "God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son...." To illustrate this powerful i...

Make richer gold plate

Guys, We have stock backgrounds, also make custom boxes for works, and we also use gold plating a lot, because of the cost of gold. To make that plating look richer, we use a trick that we posted a while a go, but may go un-noticed. First if you are casting in Sterling, or even Argentium, the white ...

Wonderful works

Wonderful works, And ample space inwhich to add birth stones to each pendant or charm. may I also suggest that you take your MDX-15 and scan the new US Nickel to see how they did the face of Thomas Jefferson as a 3/4 view instead of a profile? Then use those proportions on photos of real mothers and...
