Transition project from fusing to soldering

Hi, all!

I just wanted to show you what I was doing. I settled on a project
which combined fine silver ring fusing with copper link soldering.
Since the solder used is medium solder, that provides a steep
temperature differential so that while soldering there is no
possibility of melting the silver during a soldering operation.

I chose this so I could develop confidence in soldering while still
also using what I know.

Note catch and jump ring for catch are made from bronze.

The centerpiece is also brass, with narrow fine silver wire soldered
to it.

I KNOW it is going to need filing and polishing, but we will get

Way to go! Chain making is always my recommendation for soldering or

Hi Andrew,

I’m glad that you are posting your work. As a jewelry student, I
appreciate your step-by-step approach. It’s a lot more methodical
than the way that I have been learning, and I suspect that you will
learn and hone your skills faster than I.

Best to you.


Great progress! Keep up the good work.

Blessings, MA
