Trending. Everyone Wants One!
One quick search on social media results in one clear answer: Everyone is talking about permanent jewelry.
Fashionistas are accenting their look with a fine silver, gold, or platinum chain—or set of chains on wrists and ankles.
Never lose a bracelet. Never catch a clasp on your favorite sweater or blouse. Permanent jewelry is worry free.
Permanent Jewelry in 6 Easy Steps
ONE: Measure Out the Chain
After your customer has chosen their preferred chain, wrap the chain around the wrist or ankle and determine a fit that is not too tight nor too loose. Mark the link on the chain you will cut.
TWO: Cut the Chain
Using the cutting pliers that come with the Sunstone Permanent Jewelry Kit, cut one side of the link in half. Do NOT cut the whole link in half. Make sure the cut link does not fall off the chain.
THREE: Prep the Link for Welding
Using the two chain pliers that come with your kit, bend the two ends of the cut link away from each other to create a gap wide enough to slide the uncut link (on the opposite side of the chain) through the cut link. Then bend the ends of the cut link back together. This step is much easier if you purchase the Orion mPulse with 5x microscopic optics.
FOUR: Keep Your Customers Safe
Place your customer's wrist or ankle under the automatic darkening lens, with the lens facing the customer. Instruct others in the room not to look directly at the chain when welding. Place the protective leather patch between the chain and your customer's skin to prevent a burn, which is unlikely but possible. Make sure your customer records the next step and posts to social media.
FIVE: Weld the Link Closed
On the Orion mPulse, select the power you'll need to weld the link closed. If you're unsure, start with a low amount of power, like 3 joules. Using the chain pliers that come with your kit, apply pressure to both ends of the cut link to bring them together. While maintaining pressure on both ends with the pliers, touch the joint to the electrode. The Orion mPulse will create a weld. Check the weld for position and strength.
SIX: Polish the Chain
Take the fiberglass brush that comes with your kit and polish the weld. Some types of metal will leave more soot than others.
Start Your Own Permanent Jewelry Business
The popularity and demand for permanent jewelry creates a wonderful business opportunity. You don't have to be a jeweler to be a permanent jewelry artist. With the Orion mPulse and practice you can quickly learn to close even the smallest fine chain bracelet or anklet. All you need are the right tools.
Let's take a quick look at the numbers:
Most permanent jewelry artists are investing about USD $4,000 for all the tools and supplies they need to get started. You may invest a bit more, or bit less depending upon the type of chain you sell. To breakeven, sell 100 anklets or bracelets at USD $40.
How quickly can you sell 100 bracelets or anklets?
At fairs or home parties, some permanent jewelry artists are selling 10 chains in two to three hours. Given that rate, you'll break even after only 10 events! Of course, these numbers will change due to a number of different possibilities; but it does give you an idea of how quickly you can recoup your investment.
How do you sell permanent jewelry?
Fair, farmers markets, and home parties seem to have the biggest return. Or add permanent jewelry to your existing jewelry studio, beauty shop, boutique, tattoo or piercing studio.
How Does it Work?
Pulse arc welding (or micro TIG welding) uses electrical energy to create a plasma discharge. The high-temperature plasma, in turn, melts metal in a very small spot, a process that takes place in milliseconds. The process is clean and controllable, perfect for intricate and minute welding applications on precious and non-precious metals! Filler metal can also be added to build up joints and create strong and reliable weld “beads”, or weld seams.

Why Buy an Orion mPulse?
Weld Ignition Options
This technology prolongs the life of the electrode by lifting the electrode prior to releasing the weld. This safeguards the electrode from misfires and sticking to the workpiece. In turn, you spend more time welding and less time sharpening an electrode.
Precision and Power
Select power in 3 Ws increments up to 30 Ws. Weld spot sizes range from 1mm up to 1.5mm.
Highest Quality Standards
When you purchase an Orion mPulse, take confidence in knowing that it was designed, produced, and assembled to the highest quality standards in the industry—in other words, it’s the best you can buy.
The Orion touch screen gives you control of your welder power with an easy to use interface. No knobs or dials, just one touch to adjust.

Introducing the Sunstone Circle Protection Plan
HOW A SMALL MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTION CAN PROVIDE A LARGE UMBRELLA OF PROTECTION!
For your welder, it's a scary world out there! Welders get dropped, get abused, or just stop working. You have to protect your welder for any unfortunate incident. And the Sunstone Circle Protection Plan is an innovative way to safeguard your welder investment.
The Sunstone Circle is much, much more than an extended warranty. Here's what a small monthly subscription will deliver in peace of mind and exceptional customer service:
Sunstone Circle Protection Plan
For as long as your welder is covered by the Sunstone Circle your warranty never expires. You’ll never deal with lifeless warranty extensions, but rather enjoy a forever warranty. And that’s a big circle of protection!
If you need a loaner unit while your welder is being repaired, we’ll send one. We’re going to do all we can to keep your production levels up. If you’re in the circle, we’ll take care of you!
