Gold Foil Beads - Learn How
Take a ingot of pure gold and make beads! Well that's essentially what we do when we make gold foil beads. The first state is melting pure 24 carat gold at temperatures wel over 1000 degrees Celsius (1832 Farenheit). The mathmetical formula for this calculation is: F = (9/5)C + 32. The word in Italian for this trade is "battiloro" and in English it simply means "bead gold". This technique dates back to ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome and the machinery may have changed but the techniques are still the same.
