[Favorite Tips] Platinum Inlay


#1

To inlay gold into platinum first cut a groove into the platinum
with a bur. Then select a wire of gold smaller than the groove.
Using your torch, melt the gold into the groove fusing it to the
platinum. Because of the high melting point of platinum, you do not
have to be concerned about melting the platinum jewelry. File the
surface even and finish using emery papers. Brad Simon CMBJ
