Crystal Repair Orrefos Candlestick

Friday, December 26th, 2008 Posted in All Repair Projects, Orrafors Crystal, Orrefors Crystal Repair | No Comments »

If you forget to put out the candle it will burn down and crack the candle cup. Repairing crystal candlesticks is a challenge.  The easy way is to make a new candle cup if all I could do is grind the old one down there wouldn’t be much glass left to hold the candle . Crystal repair on candlesticks can be avoided by drill a small hole up through the bottom of the candle removing the wick.  The candle will go out before it can crack the candle cup.
