Its already been said but I will say it again.

I’ve started building chains out of fat sterling wire - 2mm wide. After
tumbling, they look truly handsome. However, eagle eye here is
bothered by the tiny marks left by my pliers - even the round noses mark
the sterling slightly when I join the jump rings in preparation for soldering.

Who in this group has solved this problem? I’ve tried wrapping the pliers
with different kinds of sticky tape,but it inevitably slips, making the join
not solder perfect.

Helpful hints really welcome
