Let the solder flow! ;-)

I have been wanting to learn to solder, even though I adore cold connections, there are times when soldering a joint or two pieces together just works better with the design. I tinkered this weekend with the solder, and the constant encouragement of some GREAT talented artists on the Jewelry Artists Network forum and here is the result - my very first sterling sheet ring! (I've done wire rings before..)

So cut up some solder, pop the top off the Prips, fire up the torch....and let the solder flow!

L' Chaim!

  1. If you don't know them already, the two best books I know about metalworking techniques are Oppi Untracht's "Jewelry Concepts and Technology" and "Metal Techniques for Craftsmen".

    I'm enjoying your blog. I have a jewelry and metalwork blog just started, but its written in portuguese.

    See you
