I’ve been trying to solder tube settings together. Yes, they get soldered, but not in the way I’m trying to do it. To make it easier, just think of a row of tubes to make a stick pendant. I’ve seen it done before…there is enough of a gap in between where you can set each stone without issues/destroying the setting next door, the solder joint is also only halfway up the bezel…it doesn’t go all the way to the top. Some folks have even made round hoop earrings of just bezels in the same manner. So, that little gap to properly set is what I’m trying to achieve, but don’t know the secret. I don’t want a ball of metal in between simply because that isn’t the look I’m going for, plus the joint is less secure. Any suggestions/ideas? Thanks.
