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
there.

Way to go! Chain making is always my recommendation for soldering or
fusing practice! - M’lou

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.
Ronnie

Andrew,

Great progress! Keep up the good work.
