I’m trying, rather unsuccessfully, to either solder or fuse (I’ll
settle for anything at this point) Argentium silver sheet (22 ga,
approx. 1/2 inch wide) strip, end to end. I’m making a collar and
need more length. Try as a might, I can’t get the ends to meet up
well - I find that one end will pop up slightly when heat. I’ve
tried binding it with iron wire, but the wire is so thin, and doesn’t
hold well, acting more as a heat diversion than anything else. Anyone
have any tips? I’m so frustrated with my various attempts.
