Unsoldering Bali beads


#1

I have some large Bali Beads which are made from two bead caps
soldered together at their bases.

If I can split the bead into the two caps, then I have a use for the
2 bead caps. It concerns me that applying heat to the joint may
melt/disfigure/displace the granuals of silver decoration on the
bead.

What advice and suggestions do you have for me in separating these
beads.

Thanks,
Chris

Hi Chris.

Could you use a jeweler’s saw?
