Jewellery Tutorials

  In this tutorial we will be showing you how to create granulation with three small pieces of 18 carat gold.

You can use any left over pieces of silver or gold. Granulation detail are great for using as organic detail in jewellery or if you want to create a bubble effect. It is easy to create granulation with metals of a lower melting point. If you wanted to create granulation with platinum for example, because of it's high melting point you would have to use a specialised blow torch rather than a standard jewellers blow torch.
