Dear Janet in Jerusalem,
I have made my first “S” ring. It is not up to my usual standards, so
I am going to try again. I couldn’t get the frames to match where the
ends of the sheet come together.
Soldering remains problematic. What kind of boric acid/powdered
solder mix do you use? I tried 2/3 boric acid and 1/3 powdered
solder. Do you have recommendations?
Do you always solder your frames together prior to inserting and
soldering filigree wire?
Can you describe how you spread out a coil of filigree to get it even
when filling a space between frames?
An admirer of your work,
