I'm interested in embedding very tiny CZ's in a PMC pendant. The stones are too small to use pliers to pick up so not sure how to do this.
Tweezers or the Tweezer Vac™ system are great tools to use when working with small gemstones or other small items.
Tweezers have many different size tips and lengths--choose the one, or the set that will suit the work you are doing.
The Tweezer Vac uses suction to pick up items and has different sized tips to give you the flexibility of working with different size items. It also eliminates tweezer marks that might occur in your metal clay when setting the CZ. I use this tool and love it for how well it works with really small stones--it accomplishes things I would've thought impossible.
