Thank you so much for showing the paper and nail trick I have always wanted to understand how a jig operates. Oooo that has me happy and excited to try now. (Ive been stripping and stockpiling old electrical cords for sometime now, lol, hoping one day I would know how to make those beautiful loops and twists!) what is goldtone?


Is it like jewelry beads or are they off of the circuit board that you got your copper from?

It isn't Goldtone, it's Goldstone, and it's a manmade stone. First made in Italy, goldstone is glass that contains a myriad of tiny, angular, copper crystals. It forms by the reduction of particles of copper oxide within the glass during a process called annealing. Glittering goldstone is found in blue, green, purple, brown, red and orange. You can find Goldstone in almost any shape of chips and beads at any good craft store and on many websites. Just do a Google search for Goldstone beads. Have fun !!!!

Maybe it's fun, but I don't understand you. Did I write Goldtone somewhere? I cannot find this typo. I know what Goldstone is, but next time I will definitely write who and where invented all the materials I use :D

My reply was to Daanr.Brown. She asked what is Goldtone? I hope this clears up who the comment was for. Sorry for the mixup DianaHM.
