Hi…another tip…you may have already tried:
I use components and odd scraps to create some of my pendants. To
keep them assembled and not moving, I add a tiny, tiny drop of Super
Glue to about 3 places to hold them together. If I do decide to
solder, the super glue will burn away - not a breathing problem
since I have a great exhaust system that removes fumes. I also have
been doing a solder “tacking” system on hard to arrange pieces.
Have a safe Memorial Day.
