RE: Baking your stones
That was funny. But what struck me as odd is that she doesn't have an oven. Who doesn't have an oven but has a microwave, computer and money for sparklies? A college student living in a dorm room is all I can come up with. Or a very, very small efficiency apt. in NY?

Idk, guess I didn't realize how good I have it. My lucky-fortunate-self probably needs to be doing some laundry with my washer and dryer right now anyways, rather than reading about some girl that wants to put her stone in the microwave, lol!

Think I will play here more though. Much more fun!

No, I didn't lose my mind. It got scared and ran away.

I just laughed out loud at the blow torch comments.

One day, I'll be a crazy old lady weighed down by all my baubles and it will be glorious.

RE: Baking your stones
Dumb n00b question, but why would you bake your jewelry?

RE: Baking your stones
You should only bake CZ and it gives it a bit more depth and warmth, and helps get rid of that glassy look.

Ah, I see. The pix look the same to me, but maybe I'm just not that sensitive. Thanks, Jenn Smile

RE: Baking your stones
It's actually not as nonsensical as it sounds - I tried "baking" a stone in the oven the way people on BTD describe, and I didn't see any sort of a change. But when I set a CZ and realized I needed to solder another loop onto the gallery to make it hang properly ... THAT actually made an eye-visible difference! Stands to reason, somehow. The trick was to heat it up very slowly, and then NOT quench it: I let it air-cool for half an hour before I dropped it in the pickle, and it actually wound up looking a lot darker than any of my other stones, and it's held with the passage of time. A cool side-effect ....
