Hi I have a question about decorating sterling silver jewelry with a
little bit of gold color from inexpensive gold filled wire. My wife
likes the yellow color of gold but so far I have just worked in SS.
Can I solder some decorative bits of gold filled wire or something
like this to the SS so it will have a yellow accent? She likes what
I do with SS but just likes things in yellow better.
If it will work what size round and square would be the best for
this. I know the smaller diameter material would have a tendency to
"melt" if I got something too hot.
Can I use the same flux and solder as usual?
Any help might save me from making a mess of things and it might
also encourage me to work on some different designs with the SS and
Larry It’s Friday and I have two days to mess around at home before I
go back to school. (Teaching a good group of 7th and 8th graders.)
