Hi. I have a question. I bought some of that steel cable to
make some of those darn chokers that are so trendy! I’m curious
– does anyone have a tip on how best to attach the clasp to
these? I could do crimp beads I suppose, what is the best way to
solder an end tab to steel? I haven’t done that before. Also, I
plan to have an unsoldered jump ring on this so that if it were
stolen (you know, ripped off the neck, as on a train…it
happens in Chicago, though usually with gold.) it would release.
I am concerned about selling a necklace which lends itself to
become a garrote. Does anyone have a thought on this?
Thanks. And thanks for all the suggestions on etching with
Ferric Chloride. I’ll try it again.
