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, safe, and controllable. Pulse arc welding is perfect for permanent jewelry and closing fine chain of different metal types.
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.
The Orion mPulse can be purchased with the Sunstone Circle protection plan. For a small monthly payment you can protect your investment for as long as you remain a member, receive VIP customer service, enjoy free shipping should your welder need repairs, and more! Learn More Here.
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.
