Carved Sardonyx Scarab Cabochons
Antique German Cut Sardonyx. Inscribed on back with hieroglyphics. 14/10mm Cabochons, Cut in scarab form, 1950’s.
This has been a life saver. Simple, easy, straightforward, you can’t go wrong with this.
Tried it with a large pendant that needed all the heat I could give it with my butane torch. This axis system is perfect. Also used the hold down arm which would have been a difficult solder any other way. Super sturdy, collapsible, brilliant.
I love the fact that it is a raised system that turns. Make soldering easier. I make statement pieces, so having the height is great for heating up the back plate. Being able to turn the piece while soldering is a added benefit. Great Tool!
