How to solder amateur jewelry
taria2 years agoReply
this is perfect for what I need. my only question is. the wire I use if from Walmart in the hardware section you can get a huge roll for like 4 bucks. and it's galvanized. Will this work with it? I'm only asking cause I make wire butterfly's, I curl each piece, sometimes using 20 to 30 pieces in one design and then use heavy duty super glue to hold it together, but sometimes in different weather it comes undone and falls apart. You can image having to wire wrap a nightmare like this getting into all the little 2012 Pandora Crystal Bead 010 holes is hard to do plus keeping it flat and not start to curl on me. Tried one and it about drove me insane even with hammering it all flat again. it looked horrid. But I need a way to keep all these curls attached to each other and not fall apart. So if I use lead free solder and the paste with the torch, will it Pandora Silver Gold Yellow Charm 174 hold? Because that is what I have and haven't tried it yet. I didn't want to take it out of the package until I know for sure, cause if it won't work then I need to take it back. Since I only really work with the galvanized wire, or the jewelry wire that I pretty much don't solder anything, that's all done in one piece and wire wrapped which is far easier then the butterfly's trust me. I know, I talk to much. Any help with this would be nice. Thanks
I use galvinized wire all the time. But keep this in mind. Since wire 2012 Pandora Crystal Bead 010 heats up so fast you have to become familiar with when the solder should be melting once you apply the flame. If you oxidize the wire the solder will not stick to it until you remove the oxidation with 2012 Pandora Crystal Bead 010 somthing like sand paper. So if you make a butterfly and try to solder it, you may get it to solder in one place Tiffany Somerset Cross Dangle Cuff but accidently oxidize wire in another place. It does take practice but for sure it can be done. now what if I do some of them together. like put a piece of solder on all the close joints and then do them like that? you think that might work instead of trying to do them all cheap tiffany jewelry separate and risk the chance of the oxidizing effect happening to it?
I do have photo's of 2012 Pandora Crystal Bead 010 these butterflys, if I knew how to show you them I would. that way you can see what I'm talking Thomas Sabo Charms Big Flower in Orange and Yellow about.
I actually lost one the other day, it came apart and fell back behind my egg crate shelving and I can't reach it, but the other two are 2012 Pandora Crystal Bead 010 still hanging on the wall, along with the beta fish I made to see if I could.
oh and even though this has nothing to do with the video, how would you recommend adding to the glass beads to this? I used the super glue gel that I used on the wire to attach them, but they tend to fall off as well. any suggestions on maybe getting those to stick? they are the flat on one side type of glass dots. that people put in fish tanks or to decorate bowls for Tiffany 1837 Round Charm Chain flowers and such. You know the ones I'm talking about right?
