This question would be a lot easier to ask with drawings and
face to face but I’ll give it a shot with verbage.
I cast a gold brooch. I now want to embellish with some fully
drilled pearls. The idea is to ball up the end of an appropriate
ga. of gold wire. Thread that through the pearl, and then attach
the other end of the wire to the brooch. Problem is, how do you
solder a wire when the pearl is already on it.
I’ve seen this look on retail jewelry (e.g. Elizabeth Locke) but
can’t figure out how to do it.
If you understood my question (I’m not even sure I did ;-)) I’d
appreciate your suggestions.
Thanks in advance.
