I am wondering if it is considered customary to solder closed the
loop on ear wires (the loop that jump rings typically grab onto).
While I don’t think the piece hanging from the ear wire will fall
off, I am wondering if any jewelers have advice on what is expected
from customers. My work that hangs from the ear wire is very heat
sensitive and it is very difficult to solder, even with products
such as heat shield to protect the heat-sensitive parts. Thus I am
trying to make a cost/benefit decision on whether to persist in this
extra finishing step.
Thanks for any opinions/advice on this issue,
