How to fix wire on back of Silver pendant w/o soldering?
I am new to this subject of metals and jewelry. I have made some
silver pendants. I drill holes in various places on the silver
pieces. I create a design for the front with various gauge silver
wire. When finished on the front, I run the remaining wire through
the holes with the intention of securely fixing the wire in place on
the back. Just twisting the wire on the back does not work well and
may not look good… I have tried using a silver “bead cap” to cover
up the twisted wire on the back but this also does not work so well.
Other than soldering (which itself may be unsightly), is there a good
way to fix the wire on the back of a pendant or earring which looks
clean and professional?
Thank you in advance for any feedback,
