6000 Series Pinstem Findings Installation Instructions

Some helpful tips when using our findings!

Our double pinstem base findings is cast and fitted with fabricated tubing with 18kt spring hard white gold pinstems and spring. The pivot pin is installed temporarily and should be removed with the spring before any soldering operations are done to attach the base to your work. As the pinstem is reassembled, be aware the spring is bowed and should be installed as shown below in the diagram. When we use these findings in our shop, we use a laser to fuse the pin ends during final assembly after the base has been attached to the pin or brooch.  If a laser is not available, the pins can be riveted. After finishing, polishing and cleaning, we recommend a small drop of light oil where the spring contacts the base.
