First, please let me thank everyone who helped me with my wire
annealing question. I successfully annealed my various scraps and
the process worked just fine with my little butane torch.
So I have finally experimented with some gold solder paste. I
soldered a large jump ring (oh boy!) with the same torch; worked just
great! Once it was soldered closed, I wrapped it with 28ga 18k wire.
My question is this: I want to attach a second wire-coiled
"flourish" to the circular wire-coiled armature. I could wire-wrap
them together, but I’d like to experiment with soldering them. I
think I can get the coiled sections to touch enough for my paste
solder to flow.
You may ask why don’t I just go ahead & try it? Well, it it’s a
ridiculous idea, I’d prefer to hear it first rather than waste all
that time I have invested in the coiled armatures. If it isn’t, then
I’ll go ahead and experiment.
As usual, many thanks to you all,
