I want to foil a geode slice for jewelry making and attach jump rings to it. How can I make the jump rings secure enough to include in a jewelry piece, e.g., bracelet?

@ We're so thrilled to hear you are enjoying your Fuseworks Microwave Kiln! The Fuseworks Microwave Kiln is available in one size only, but can be purchased separately from the kit as item number 424849. If you have damaged the kiln base or lid and wish to replace the damaged piece only, replacements can special ordered by phone or online - just request item number 424849B for the base, or 424849T for the lid. Unfortunately, a kiln repair cement likely won't allow you to repair the base of a microwave kiln properly. If the damage is minimal, you may be able to simply avoid positioning glass over the divot and continue using the base.
