  1. Hi,
    I am writing from the U.S.A.
    I am a jeweler planning to teach pewter embossing. I have done a lot of gold/silver repousse and chasing- but not pewter. I have some 0.015 lead free sheet pewter but am afraid it will be too hard/thick for some of my students to form without hammers like traditional repousse in pitch. I have no idea who might supply this thinner pewter besides you! Everytime I look, all of the suppliers are in Australia…and my order time may be a problem. Also I need to find something to fill the hollows with while working to hold the form (other than pitch)…some kind of plastic that gives but also holds. Additionally I am wondering what basic hand tools would be good to order. I have a lot of chasing tools but am afraid to contaminate them with pewter…
    Any help would be appreciated!

  2. Hi Angela, you are very welcome. Please phone us at tel 94078860 and arrange for a time that suit us all. Kind Regards

  5. Hi Wilna,

  6. Hi Christine
    We had a look for the earring but unfortunately we couldn’t find it. We hope that she will find it.

  7. Hi Wilna, asking for some help with lost & found, if you could please. Sandra lost her silver whale tail earring in your carpark today ( after acrylics class with Ann this morning ) I won’t be in tomorrow ( for pastels with Ann) as she asked if I would look for her too, and was wondering if you have time would you be so kind to have a quick look for it. If found could you keep it aside for her please, would greatly apriciate it.
    Thank you very much & best regards
    from Christine.
